Waterways Postgraduate Student Conference

Congratulations to Deborah Paul from Canterbury University who won the Water New Zealand-sponsored People’s Choice award at the recent Waterways Postgraduate Student Conference 2019.

Deborah’s paper looked at the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in surface drinking waters.

This award comes with an invitation for Deborah to present her winning paper at the Water New Zealand Annual Conference in Hamilton next September. So we look forward to hearing more about this important area of research.

The Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management began in 2009 as a partnership between the University of Canterbury and Lincoln University. It aims to improve the knowledge-driven management of freshwater resources by supporting postgraduate research programmes in the freshwater space.
