Environmental Researcher Izba Ali
This international project provides training to a new generation of high-achieving early-stage researchers to provide them with the transferable and scientific skills necessary for thriving careers in a burgeoning area. At Inopsys, we welcomed Izba Ali to our team:
Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early-Stage Researcher (ESR08) of the InnovEOX project under the supervision of Ir. Kwinten Van Eyck (Inopsys) and Prof. Dr. Raf Dewil (KU Leuven).
Izba Ali is an Environmental Engineer with a passion and innate desire to innovate sustainable solutions for a better world. Her passion led her to opt for Environmental Engineering as her bachelor’s studies. She was awarded a merit scholarship to complete her bachelors from UET, Lahore (Pakistan), during which, she was also a part of an international exchange program (Ugrad-USEFP) and has studied at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (USA).
The pressing situation of water crises worldwide and especially in her own country (Pakistan), steered her towards enhancing theoretical and practical understanding in the field. Therefore, she worked on various water and wastewater treatment projects during her work with MM Pakistan as well as Envi-pur Ltd (Czech Republic). In 2018, she was selected for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship (IMETE) and completed her international masters from the University of Chemistry and Technology (Czech Republic), IHE Delft (Netherlands), and Ghent University (Belgium). She carried out her master thesis research in the field of photocatalytic advanced (waste)water treatment.
