Philipp Stadler


Research Interests


• Water quality
• Real time monitoring
• Transport processes and pathways of fecal indicators
• Hydrogeology and environmental isotopes

Philipp´s principle research interests focus on the temporal dynamics and spatial patterns in microbial water quality. He is experienced with hydrogeological fieldwork and monitoring engineering in water quality. He combines hydrological methods with novel microbiological assays, such as the online measurements of enzymatic activities in water resources to bridge the temporal and spatial gap in microbial transport monitoring. Philipp graduated from the Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems in October 2017 with the PhD thesis “Rapid on-site determination of enzymatic activity in water resources: From the technical assessment towards new perspectives in water quality monitoring”.


Key Facts


Philipp holds a PhD in Civil Engineering from TU Wien and a diploma in Environmental Geology from the University of Vienna. He has worked on hydrogeology, karst hydrology and hydromorphology for the national park Kalkalpen, the Geological Survey of Austria and various technical boards in the field of hydrogeology and environmental geology.
