Ms Premila Semanada

Biography

Niranjani (Premila) Semananda is a PhD student in Water Engineering at the School of Natural and Built Environments (NBE) and at the SA Water Centre for Water Management and Reuse (CWMR), University of South Australia (UniSA). Niranjani’s PhD research focuses on developing a sustainable irrigation system to increase water use efficiency, based on wicking bed technology. Premila will work closely with community gardens in South Australia by introducing the system to gardeners as a sustainable irrigation method to secure scarce water resources. The system also will be introduced to communities in urban areas, to adopt into their lifestyles, as a self-sufficient food growing method which can also be used as a hobby to grow vegetables.  Premila's previous  study  was a Master’s degree in Water Resources Management at UniSA which inspired her to select  the same area of researchfor her PhD.
