Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Paul T. Yillia (Dr. techn.) joined the Water (WAT) Program at IIASA in November 2012 to support research on the Water-Energy Nexus and the World Water Scenarios Project. Previously, he was a research and teaching assistant at the Vienna University of Technology, Institute for Water Quality, Resources and Waste Management, where he accomplished joint research and transnational exchange of knowledge and skills on water science and technology, especially in developing countries and countries in transition. Prior to this, Dr. Yillia undertook various assignments in the Netherlands with UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education and Cap-Net (Capacity Building Network for Integrated Water Resources Management), with progressive responsibility in training materials development, research, education and partnership in the water sector. He was also lecturer and research fellow on aquatic systems at the University of Sierra Leone and has undertaken various capacity building responsibilities within the framework of development co-operation in several countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
With a mixed background in applied science, Dr. Yillia has a range of research interests in the water sector, from natural and induced processes and applications in aquatic systems to water quality implications on human health and the environment. His research and publication record covers a range of topics, including water resources evaluation and planning, water-related health risk assessment and catchment vulnerability assessment and management.
