Research Interests

 

• Groundwater pollution

• Interactions between surface water and groundwater 

• Transport behaviour of chemicals and faecal indicators during riverbank filtration

 

Inge’s PhD focuses on the behaviour of micropollutants and faecal indicators during riverbank filtration. She combines environmental chemistry with hydrogeology and microbiology. Her goal is to identify and quantify important transport parameters that control the transport of these parameters during bank filtration. For this purpose, extensive sampling campaigns were conducted under normal and extreme flow conditions of the river. During these sampling campaigns, both surface- and groundwater samples were analyzed for micropollutants, standard chemical parameters, faecal indicators and biostability parameters. 

 

Key Facts

 

Inge obtained a bachelor degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the VU University in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. During her bachelors she gained an interest in hydrology, and decided to complete a Master of Science in Hydrology at the same university. During her masters, she conducted two research projects. The first research project was conducted at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and was on the behaviour of poly- and perfluorinated chemicals in groundwater. She completed her master thesis at EAWAG in Switzerland, the topic being ‘Behaviour of five pharmaceuticals with high baseline toxicity in wastewater treatment’. After graduation, she worked as a Marie Curie short term research fellow at the Institute for Analytical Research at Hochschule Fresensius in Germany. Here, she was working on emission of poly- and perfluorinated chemicals into the environment.
