Research

When I don’t climb, ride and fix my motorbikes or fantasise about going to remote places I am trying to do some work at uni, time permitted. I research on the subject of mathematical modelling of wastewater treatment systems and have recently completed and defended a PhD thesis entitled “Modelling and Simulation of Membrane Bioreactors for Wastewater Treatment”. It is available to view and download under the link below.

Modelling and Simulation of Membrane Bioreactors for Wastewater Treatment

You can quote this thesis with BibTeX as follows:

@PHDTHESIS{Janus2013a, author = {Tomasz Janus}, title = {Modelling and Simulation of Membrane Bioreactors for Wastewater Treatment}, school = {De Montfort University, School of Engineering, Media and Sustainable Development, Leicester, UK}, year = {2013}, }

If you would like to get the source files, either text, graphic, or source code of the mathematical models described in my thesis, please contact me using the contact form provided in the Welcome page.

If you like the presentation side of my thesis, you can download a LaTeX template which I partly used, modified and created.

I also managed to publish some papers related and unrelated to my PhD thesis. The ones which I could find in a digital format are included below in a .pdf format.
