Claudia Agudelo-Vera PhD MSc

  • Scientific researcher

Claudia Agudelo-Vera is a scientific researcher on the drinking water infrastructure team. She has a Master of Science degree in ‘Urban Environmental Management’ and did her PhD in urban water management at Wageningen University. Over the past years, Claudia worked at KWR on various projects focusing on the future durability of the pipeline network. For example, Claudia developed a water demand stress test for networks to evaluate the robustness of the nets. Within the exploratory research ‘drinking water infrastructure of the future’, she analysed transitions in the water infrastructure and future scenarios of the city and their implications. Claudia also does research for the Theme Group ‘Climate-proof water sector’, in which she takes stock of the soil and water temperature in the distribution network in urban areas. Her expertise is modelling the distribution network and analysing the impact of urban properties, but she also has an interest in the interactions and transitions of socio-technical systems and an integral approach to water (infrastructure) in urban areas.
