New PhD Student Tracey Lydon joins Hydro-BPT team in Trinity College Dublin
A new Ph.D. student has joined the Trinity College Dublin Hydro-BPT project team. Tracey Lydon has joined the Trinity project team to work on the design and development micro-hydropower turbines suitable for a variety of contexts to recover energy form water distribution networks. She has worked previously for an environmental consultancy firm in South Africa; on the design of water infrastructure and the development of water reconciliation strategies, and as a water and sanitation manager for a number of hospitals in Haïti. She hopes that her variety of work experience may add practical and useful contributions to the team and the advancement of the project.
Her role will involve the application of open innovation and platform thinking in order to facilitate the involvement of asset owners, operators, engineering specialist, and suppliers of equipment, policymakers and researchers in the development of the MHP turbines. Solutions suitable for both the western world and a developing context will be investigated.
