Professor Savic (FREng, FICE, FCIWEM, FIWA, MASCE, CEng) is the UK’s first Professor of Hydroinformatics having held this post at the University of Exeter since 2001.
His research interests cover the interdisciplinary field of Hydroinformatics, which transcends traditional boundaries of water/ environmental science and engineering, informatics/ computer science (including Artificial Intelligence, data mining and optimisation techniques) and environmental engineering. Applications are generally in the environmental engineering/science areas, including water resources management (both quality and quantity), flood management, water & wastewater systems and environmental protection & management
By 2045, an estimated 6 billion people will be living in cities. That means an enormous amount of showers flowing, toilets flushing, and sinks being filled. Dragan Savic from the University of Exeter explains why the 'invisible utility' should be at the heart of smart city plans.
