Cameron's project "Combining engineering experience and formal optimisation for designing water systems under climate uncertainty" commenced in 2016.
As a WaterRA student, I have been in the very fortunate position of travelling to Europe for my PhD research. I visited Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands and Politecnico di Milano in Italy, both of which are well-regarded engineering universities that I have collaborated with in the past. During my time at TU Delft I was able to meet many people from my field, give a seminar on my research, visit some case study sites, and get started on a new paper with one of the academics there. At Politecnico di Milano, I again visited a case study site, and furthered the research for a new paper with two of the academics there. I also presented at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) conference in Vienna, Austria, which had over 15,000 attendees, where I again had the chance to continue discussions with other academics and meet many new people.
By the end of the trip I had given a conference presentation, visited two universities, given a seminar at one of the universities, visited multiple case study sites, and gotten started on a new collaborative paper which will include three authors from Europe.
