Inga’s research focus is on decentralised and sustainable water systems including on-site and small-scale wastewater treatment, source-separating sanitation systems 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. Inga’s focus now is on decentralised sustainable sanitation and stormwater systems where she looks at the function and treatment efficiency of different types of treatment technologies. She also analyses the systems from a sustainability perspective.
