Inga’s research focus is on sustainable small-scale water systems including on-site wastewater treatment and advanced stormwater treatment.

During her PhD studies, Inga developed test methods for sorbent materials used for phosphorus treatment in on-site wastewater facilities. Her investigations included laboratory experiments with different filter materials as well as hydro-geochemical transport simulations. Continuing on the topic, Inga now investigates small-scale wastewater treatment facilities at full scale where she studies the function and treatment efficiency of different types of treatment technologies. She investigates the systems from a sustainability perspective and works also with source-separating technologies. Having broadened her field of research, she works also with advanced methods for stormwater treatment, e.g. filter and membrane technology and coagulation/flocculation.
