Dr. Manuel Rodriguez
Dr. Manuel Rodriguez is an NSERC Industrial Chair at the Université Laval, conducts research activities focusing on the management and surveillance of drinking water quality from source to tap. His recent research has contributed significantly to the development of knowledge and decision-making tools for managing the spatio-temporal variations of chlorinated DBPs in drinking water (mostly in medium and large distribution systems). Dr. Rodriguez and his team developed one of the most complete knowledge bases available on chlorinated DBPs in Canada under both laboratory and full-scale conditions. His other research expertise includes source water protection, water quality monitoring strategies, regulation aspects of drinking water and modelling methodologies for water quality.
