Kelsey Flanagan’s main scientific interests are centered around the development of sustainable systems for stormwater management in urban areas. Her PhD, defended in 2018 at the University of Paris-Est in France, focused on the retention and fate of a variety of micropollutants in a stormwater biofilter treating road runoff. Based essentially on the extensive monitoring of field systems, this work included both performance evaluation and a characterization of the processes driving the behavior of different pollutants in the system. She has also worked on the development of guidelines for the evaluation of multi-objective stormwater control measures.

As a member of the VINNOVA-funded competence center DRIZZLE, she is currently studying the environmental risk of sediments from stormwater ponds and sedimentation facilities, as well as modeling the transport, retention and fate of micropollutants in stormwater biofilters.
