Personal profile

Biography

Tanveer Adyel received his Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering at The University of Western Australia.  His research topic was to assess the performance of two constructed wetlands in stormwater nutrient attenuation over diurnal to decadal scale. Moreover, he developed a novel dissolved oxygen based "metabolism" as a proxy indicator of wetland function. Before joining Monash University, he worked at:

  • The University of Western Australia
  • Murdoch University, Australia
  • China University of Mining and Technology, China
  • Water Corporation (as iPREPWA Fellow), Western Australia

Research interests

Integrated multi-functional green infrastructure (GI) or nature-based solutions (NBSs) for urban liveability and resilience

  • GI/NBSs i.e., green wall, green roof, constructed wetland etc for urban stormwater management
  • GI/NBSs for urban heat island mitigation
  • Sponge city for stormwater pollution control in Chinese context
  • Retro-fication of aging water assets

Supervision interests

I am always happy to discuss topics for research students related to stormwater management, water quality monitoring, and development of sensor-based index for water environment. Students are also well come to share their own ideas for further discussion.
