Terica Sinclair, who worked on "Virus Control by Enhanced Physical Separation", received her Doctorate on the 31st of May, 2018. She was a Ph.D. student in MSuS, in collaboration with Wetsus, and was supervised by prof.dr.ir. H.D.W. Roesink and prof.dr. A.M. de Roda Husman.
Her research involved the modification of MF membranes for enhanced pathogen removal for drinking water treatment. By using these modified membranes, drinking water purification processes can be simplified compared to UF based treatment systems, a significant advantage for decentralized water treatment systems.
She received the 'Best Ph.D. project' award in June 2017. Details regarding her Ph.D. research can be found here.
