Keynote Speaker II


Prof. Vladan Babovic
National University of Singapore

Vladan Babovic is a leading scientist in the field of hydroinformatics where he has been spearheading research in data-driven research and computer modeling of hydraulics and hydrological phenomena from early 1990s. In more recent years, his work on flexibility and real options pertaining to decision-making under deep uncertainties in water- and climate-related domains gaining wider recognition. In addition to being a leading researcher and educator, Vladan is a scientist entrepreneur who was instrumental in securing funding and subsequently lead establishment and managed growth of research institutes, 65 million Singapore Delft Water Alliance (SDWA) and NUSDeltares, for both of which he served as a founding Director. Under his leadership SDWA and NUSDeltares were recognized in March 2014 by prestigious Winsemius Awards. Vladan obtained double Ph.D. degrees from UNESCO-IHE and Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands in 1995. In 2001 he obtained a business degree at IMD Lausanne (Switzerland). Prior to joining National University of Singapore, he was Head of Emerging Technologies at Danish Hydraulic Institute (1995-2002) and Senior Research Scientist at WL | Delft Hydraulics (2003-2005).

He has served as the consultant of various governments, research institutes, utilities, universities, and industries all over the world.

 

Plenary Speaker I


Prof. Anja Pfennig
HTW Berlin (University of Applied Sciences Berlin), Germany

A. Pfennig was born in Büdelsdorf, Germany in 1970. She studied Minerology at the Rheinische Friedrich Wilhelms University Bonn, Germany, where she graduated in 1997. Her Ph.-D. in the field of ceramic moulds for liquid metal casting was earned in 2001 from the Friedrich Alexander University of Erlangen, Germany. She then worked for Siemens Energy in charge of ceramic shields for stationary gas turbines and transferred to Berlin in 2008 where she conducted scientific research on the oxidation of high temperature materials and corrosion behavior of steels used in Carbon Capture Techniques. 2009 she became full professor at the Applied University Berlin, HTW where she currently teaches material science for engineering students. Anja Pfennigs research interest and expertise is in the field of corrosion fatigue of materials at high temperature and high pressure simulating geothermal environments
