Miklas Scholz, canding, BEng (equiv), PgC, MSc, PhD, DSc, CWEM, CEnv, CSci, CEng, FHEA, FIEMA, FCIWEM, FICE, Fellow of IWA, is Prof. in Water Resources Engineering at Lund University, Sweden. He also holds the Chair in Civil Engineering at The University of Salford, UK. He is a Professor and the Head of the Civil Engineering Research Group in Salford. Moreover, he is a Distinguished Professor at Johannesburg University and the Central University of Technology, Free State.

He has shown individual excellence evidenced by world-leading publications, postgraduate supervision and research impact. His main research areas in terms of publication output are as follow: treatment wetlands, integrated constructed wetlands (ICW), sustainable flood retention basins (SFRB), permeable pavement systems, decision support systems, ponds and capillary suction time. About 48% each of his research is in wastewater treatment and water resources management, respectively. The remaining 4% are in capillary processes and water treatment.

Research Interest: Civil engineering; Environmental engineering; environmental science; water resources engineering; agricultural water management; pollution control; wastewater treatment; decision support systems; treatment wetlands; integrated constructed wetlands; hydrology; sustainable flood retention basins; sustainable drainage systems; permeable pavement systems; ponds; capillary suction time.
