Join Professor Banu Örmeci and the Faculty of Engineering and Design for the next iteration of Ingenious Talks Online: Monitoring Wastewater for Early Warning of Future COVID-19 Outbreaks.
Dr. Banu Örmeci’s research group at Carleton University is working on the development of an early warning tool based on COVID-19 levels in sewage collected from different zones in Ottawa, ON. The geographic information collected on the spread and prevalence of the virus will enable the identification of hot spots as targets for potential health and safety interventions, saving both lives and resources.
Dr. Banu Örmeci is the Jarislowsky Chair in Water and Health, Canada Research Professor in Wastewater Treatment Engineering and the director of the Global Water Institute at Carleton University.
