He brings more than 15 years of experience optimizing process and technical operations for wastewater treatment plants. Andalib’s work includes evaluation, diagnosis, monitoring and automation systems, mathematical modelling, and research and development.
Joining Stantec as a senior principal, Andalib is an expert in biological nutrient removal processes, mathematical modelling of biological processes, dynamic simulations, and process automation and biofilm processes. He is a registered professional engineer and a board certified environmental engineer.
Andalib received his Ph.D. in chemical and biochemical engineering from the University of Western Ontario. Widely published in technical journals, he is also active in the Water Environment Federation (WEF) where he currently serves on several committees, including the WEF Municipal Resource Recovery Design (MRRDC) and Modeling Expert Group of the Americas (MEGA).
Stantec’s wastewater scientists and engineers have designed wastewater treatment facilities ranging in size from 0.25 million gallons per day (mgd) to more than 800 mgd. Our experience encompasses sewer collection systems, advanced wastewater treatment facilities, residuals management and handling, odour control and air pollution, and water reuse.
