Sebastien Rauch

Biträdande professor at Chalmers, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Water Environment Technology

Sebastien is a Professor at the Division of Water Environment Technology at Chalmers. Sebastiens main research objective is to provide a further understanding of the interactions between man and the environment, in terms of contamination and use of resources, and develop solutions based on this understanding. Because cities concentrate on human activities, this research has largely focused on urban environments and systems. His research expertise lies within the areas of trace element biogeochemistry, urban pollution, sustainable urban development, water and sanitation, as well as the development of analytical tools and methodologies.
