Thesis Title The impact of user behaviour on wastewater constituents and water treatment
Thesis Abstract This research will develop deterministic and stochastic models for the removal of pharmaceutical pollutants from wastewater, and use Bayesian methods including Gaussian Process Emulators to quantify how uncertainty about inputs (due to variable user disposal practices and environmental conditions) is propagated to treated water. We will also exploit the flexibility in the choice of GPE covariance function to deal with cases where the dependence on the inputs is not smooth, such as when there are bifurcations. This work will inform the design of wastewater treatment processes that can deliver consistent high quality output in the face of variable poor quality inputs.
