Sandeep Joshi has professional experience of 25 years in environmental monitoring and pollution elimination technologies and has done his masters in environmental sciences at the University of Pune, Maharashtra, India, in 1989, and doctoral work I in river sediments and doctoral work II in water and wastewater technologies. He is well versed in environmental instrumentation, impact analysis, conventional and nonconventional pollution treatment, ecological engineering, and ecological restoration of rivers and lakes. He innovated ecotechnological treatment systems for point and nonpoint sources of pollution through extensive research for 20 years and field applications for the waste flows ranging from 1 to 600,000 cu m/day. He has also designed more than 400 sewage and effluent treatment systems ranging from 1 to 14,000,000 cu m/day flows. Till date, he has worked on designing the ecorestoration of 42 rivers (flows 10–600 MLD) and 62 lakes (area ranging from 2 to 20,000 ha), conducted extensive studies on catchment of Ujjani Reservoir’s (Pune District, Maharashtra, India) pollution load assessment, and conducted research on the enrichment of nutrients and their impacts on ecological health of the water body for the last 12 years.
