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

Inga's research focus is on source-separating wastewater systems, resource recovery and low-tech / nature-based treatment of wastewater and greywater. Her investigations focus on the management and reuse of greywater including both treatment processes and systems analysis. Another focus of her work is the recovery of plant nutrients from source-separated blackwater.
