Tanveer Adyel received his Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering at The University of Western Australia.  His research topic was to assess the performance of two constructed wetlands in stormwater nutrient attenuation over diurnal to decadal scale. Moreover, he developed a novel dissolved oxygen based “metabolism” as a proxy indicator of wetland function. Before joining Monash University, he worked at:

  • The University of Western Australia
  • Murdoch University, Australia
  • China University of Mining and Technology, China
  • Water Corporation (as iPREPWA Fellow), Western Australia


  • PhD, The University of Western Australia

Research Interests

Stormwater management and treatment; Water pollution control; Nature-based solution/Sponge city (wetland, bio-filter, green-wall technology); Micro-plastic management

Research Projects

Current projects

Benefits of green urban water infrastructure under a warming climate: A collaboration to improve urban and community resilience

This multi-disciplinary project brings together three early career researchers (ECRs) from Monash Faculties of Engineering, Information Technology and Science to investigate the significance of green urban water infrastructure (GI) on attenuating water pollutants and minimising the urban heat island effect under a changing climate. The project will bring together ECRs knowledge of GI design, monitoring, nutrient cycling, 2D image processing and data science to deliver optimum GI function for future cities. In addition to the research significance of this project, the outcomes will be used to deliver recommendations for future GI design by government and industrial stakeholders.

Integrated multi-functional green infrastructure (GI) or nature-based solutions (NBSs) for urban liveability and resilience

This project aims to investigate the performance of different green infrastructure i.e., green wall, green roof, constructed wetland etc for urban stormwater management under different hydrological and ecological conditions. Moreover, this project also looks for the retro-fitting of existing aging water assets for better performance under future climate scenario.
