Prof Andrea Iris is the Professor of Water Process Engineering, Faculty of Chemical and Process Engineering, and Director, Institute for Advanced Membrane Technology (IAMT), at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany.

She is an international leader in interdisciplinary water engineering with a focus on environmental (micro)pollutants and an innovator & entrepreneur in the field of environmental process engineering/membrane technologies. With the vision ‘Safe Water for All Children,’ her research is focused on (I) new membrane materials with higher efficiency & controllable contaminant and micropollutant removal (II) understanding of retention and fouling in complex and realistic water matrices that informs material development and process design (III) development of systems that operate long term in the most difficult circumstances such as rural area or developing countries.
