On this website we would like to shortly introduce our current scholars staying, studying and doing research at Technische Universität Braunschweig.

Long term PhD scholars

Chirayu Jaroenongard

Chirayu Jaroenongard

Chirayu Jaroenongard is doing research at TU Braunschweig. He thinks that EXCEED is the best opportunity to discuss and exchange knowledge and furthermore to gain experience from many experts and researchers.


Mina Samaan

Mina Samaan - EXCEED Website

Mina Michel Samaan is one of the PhD scholars at TU-Braunschweig who are funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) through the EXCEED-SWINDON project. Mina has started his study at the Institute of Social Sciences since November 2013, and he is focusing in his dissertation on transboundary water governance, particularly in the Nile Basin. Samaan has been working as a Lecturer Assistant at Mansoura University, Egypt, the place where he got his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Architectural Engineering in 2008 and 2013 respectively. () read more

Mohd. Sarfaraz Banda


“I am a PhD student in the Department of Hydraulic Engineering at Leichtweiß-Institute für Wasserbau (LWI), TU Braunschweig. I have been studying drought-driven river morphology changes and consequences of discharge restoration using the numerical model Delft3D, and field data in the River Dhaleswari (Bangladesh).”


Saber M. Elsayed Abdelaal


Saber M. Elsayed Abdelaal is an Egyptian PhD candidate at TU Braunschweig at the Leichtweiß-Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources, Department of Hydromechanics and Coastal Engineering. He is working on his PhD-thesis with the topic “Breaching of Coastal Barriers under Extreme Storm Surges and Implications for Groundwater Contamination”.


Seyed Moin Mojabi


“Currently I am working on Numerical Modelling of Submergence and Porosity Effects on Morphological Impacts of Artificial Reefs, granted by EXCEED/Swindon. This project is briefly called NMoSPECM. In this project, it is attempted to design and perform systematic numerical simulations to asses the effects of submergence and porosity of artificial reefs on morphological changes in coastal areas, especially shoreline changes.”


Short term MSc and PhD scholars

Uriel Garza


“I am a M.Sc. student in Chemical Engineering at the University of Guadalajara and my work is focused on the mathematical description of biological reactors used for the wastewater treatment. Thanks to EXCEED, I did a research stay at the TU Braunschweig for three months. This was a great experience because I had the opportunity to know new points of view and to meet very nice people.”


Aakanchya Budhathoki


“At TU Braunschweig, I have been learning the technical aspect of my thesis from a very experienced faculty and researchers. I am also fortunate to be among a wide variety of international students who come from diverse background, therefore I can learn about various cultures.”


Violeta Fernandez Díaz


“Due to the partnership between the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and Technische Universität of Braunschweig (TU), I am working with remote sensing techniques to determine subsidence in the coastal area of Ensenada city, Mexico.”


Xinzi Peng


“Today the carbon rich stream is returned to the wastewater treatment plant. Investigating the screw extrusion press will lead to a minimised energy consumption needed for dewatering the sludge. Additionally an increase in the dewatering efficiency, a minimisation of the flocculant dosage as well as a load reduction from sludge liquor are aimed for.”
