Environmental Researcher / Engineer

Hello there

I am interested in researching environmental management. I am very interested in research into urban waste and air management. But lately I have focused more on municipal waste management.

Some of my research results have been published in several scientific journals. Besides that, I enjoy eSport, photography, cycling, and love the internet of things.
