Centre for Biorobotics Researchers Invited to Present their Work at UC Berkeley, UC Davis
Jeffrey Tuhtan from the TalTech Centre for Biorobotics also gave an invited lecture at UC Davis on April 23rd on the topic of "Environmental Sensing and Intelligence: Real-Time Data Assimilation". He was hosted by Prof. Gregory Pasternack, a leading expert on environmental modelling of rivers and ecohydraulics. The presentation illustrates TalTech's international recognition for its excellence in developing next generation underwater sensor systems for large-scale environmental monitoring and decision-making.
Asya Drenkova-Tuhtan from the TalTech Centre for Biorobotics gave an invited presentation at University of California, Berkeley on April 25th on the topic of “Reusable magnetic sorbent materials for advanced wastewater treatment and nutrient recovery”. She was hosted by the lab of Prof. David Sedlak who is a world-leading expert in Environmental Engineering, co-director of the Berkeley Water Center at UC Berkeley and Editor-in-Chief of the reputable ACS journal Environmental Science and Technology. The talk demonstrated that TalTech is internationally recognized for its valuable contribution to the characterization and application of novel magnetic nanocomposite materials for the sorption of hazardous contaminants and recovery of finite nutrient resources from wastewater streams. The magnetic sorbents were developed in cooperation with the University of Stuttgart and Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research in Germany.
