Alexandra Müller’s research field is mainly related to finding and evaluating potential sources of urban stormwater pollutants. The focus of the scientific work is to investigate the contribution of pollutants from urban surfaces and materials, e.g. roofs and facades, to stormwater runoff. Alexandra is currently running a pilot project at LTU campus, studying the contribution of pollutants from building surface materials. Previously, Alexandra has studied Master of Science in Natural Resources Engineering, with speciality in Environment and Water, at Luleå University of Technology. The master’s thesis was conducted in the urban water engineering group and consisted of laboratory screening tests of the leaching of organic and inorganic compounds from conventional roofing materials. Alexandra’s research work includes laboratory and pilot-scaled experiments as well as field measurements of stormwater quality.
