Bio Dr David Werner is a Reader in Environmental Systems Modelling at Newcastle University. His research is supported by UKRI, UK industry, research charities and the Newton Fund/British Council/Department for Business Innovation and Skills. David Werner works with partners across five continents (see www.cleanwaterresearch.org), including partners in India, China, Brazil, Thailand, Cuba and Tanzania on water quality. His research group uses portable water quality surveying tools, including next generation sequencing for microbial water quality assessment to generate comprehensive data for the spatial-relational GIS mapping of waterborne hazards. He holds a GCRF award for the research project IMAGINE: Innovative Technologies for rapidly surveying, mapping and communication waterborne hazards. As part of IMAGINE, Dr Werner and his staff provided eight academics, students and technicians at Ardhi University in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, practical training in the use of molecular microbiology for the detection of waterborne hazards. In the IMAGINE project, UK and Tanzanian researchers co-develop on-site water quality assessment methods with a range of innovative technologies, including portable gene sequencing, and integrate these methods with digital applications to rapidly curate, visualize and communicate waterborne hazard data.
