Dr. Lucia Hernandez-Leal has more than 15 years of research experience on wastewater treatment, in particular on source-separated sanitation, removal of micropollutants, and more recently antimicrobial resistance in the water cycle. She has operated as a knowledge bridge between academia and business supporting the implementation of source-separated sanitation in the pilot and large scale. At Wetsus, she has set up and coordinated a program for the research of AMR in the urban water cycle, studying the problem at the different sources such as hospital and communal wastewater, as well as the input of the agricultural sector, also involving water technology providers, clinical laboratories and waterboards. She currently co-supervises 4 Ph.D. projects and has coordinated the participation of Wetsus in 4 European projects on the subject of AMR in water in the past 6 years (Denewa, Health-i-Care, Meduwa, Repares). Together with colleague Roel Meulepas, she is in charge of WP3 with the goal of fostering the cooperation with the non-academic sector.
