Water Reuse is pleased to introduce new Co-Editor in Chief, Amy Childress.

Professor Childress will join Stephen Gray and Hong-Ying Hu on the Editor-in-Chief team for the journal, working closely to develop the journal to best serve the water research community.

A Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Southern California and Director of USC’s ReWater Center (Center for Water Reuse and Resource Recovery), Amy Childress' research and scholarly interests are in the areas of potable water reuse, desalination, and the water-energy nexus. 

Most recently, I have investigated membrane processes for innovative solutions to contaminant and energy challenges; conceptual analyses of innovative configurations of shared/integrated facilities; colloidal and interfacial aspects of membrane processes; and brine reduction and energy recovery. I am a past president of the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors, a Board-Certified Environmental Engineering member, and a recent Fulbright US scholar. I chair National Water Research Institute independent advisory panels on potable reuse and seawater desalination projects and serve on the external audit panel for Singapore Public Utilities Board. I am co-editor of Desalination and on the advisory boards of several technical journals.

I am excited to join IWA Publishing’s Water Reuse team. In particular, I look forward to more submissions on potable water reuse. The world is experiencing changing climate and droughts. There are places where population is growing/urbanizing, places where industry is developing/advancing, places where natural water resources are limited due to arid climates, places where upstream diversions have depleted river flows, and places where there is insufficient governance or mismanagement of water resources. Potable water reuse is being pursued as a technically feasible and drought-resilient solution. Manuscript submissions on these topics – or other topics on the treatment and use of non-conventional water resources – are encouraged!

Water Reuse publishes Review Papers, Research Papers, Short Communications and Perspectives related focuses on all aspects of the treatment and use of non-conventional water resources. Learn more about the journal and how to submit at iwaponline.com/jwrd.
