Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Virus
  • Pathogen

Warish Ahmed mainly focuses on Microbiology, Veterinary medicine, Feces, Sewage and Wastewater. His study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Water quality, Fecal coliform, Salmonella and Clostridium perfringens. Warish Ahmed combines subjects such as Contamination, Campylobacter and Rainwater harvesting with his study of Veterinary medicine.

His Feces research incorporates elements of Aeromonas hydrophila, Polymerase chain reaction, Enterobacteriaceae and Bacteroides. Sewage is closely attributed to Pollution in his research. His Indicator bacteria research integrates issues from Enterococcus and Escherichia coli.

His most cited work include:

  • First confirmed detection of SARS-CoV-2 in untreated wastewater in Australia: A proof of concept for the wastewater surveillance of COVID-19 in the community. (427 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater: State of the knowledge and research needs. (187 citations)
  • Real-time PCR detection of pathogenic microorganisms in roof-harvested rainwater in Southeast Queensland, Australia. (142 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Veterinary medicine, Microbiology, Feces, Sewage and Wastewater. His Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecology, Contamination, Pollution, Water quality and Indicator bacteria. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Faecal pollution, Rainwater harvesting, Salmonella, Escherichia coli and Polymerase chain reaction.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Aeromonas hydrophila, Enterococcus and Fecal coliform, Microbial source tracking in addition to Feces. His Sewage research includes themes of Stormwater, Effluent, Bacteroides and Sewage treatment. As a part of the same scientific family, Warish Ahmed mostly works in the field of Wastewater, focusing on Ancylostoma caninum and, on occasion, Necator americanus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (53.33%)
  • Microbiology (46.19%)
  • Feces (38.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Wastewater (29.52%)
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (5.71%)
  • Coronavirus disease 2019 (4.29%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Wastewater, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Coronavirus disease 2019, Veterinary medicine and Sewage. His research in Wastewater intersects with topics in Virus and Biotechnology. His Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Feces, Antibiotic resistance and Microbial source tracking.

In Feces, Warish Ahmed works on issues like Bacteriophage, which are connected to Water quality management. His work carried out in the field of Sewage brings together such families of science as Fecal coliform, Contamination, Marker gene and Bacteroides. His study focuses on the intersection of Tap water and fields such as Microbiology with connections in the field of Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • First confirmed detection of SARS-CoV-2 in untreated wastewater in Australia: A proof of concept for the wastewater surveillance of COVID-19 in the community. (427 citations)
  • SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater: State of the knowledge and research needs. (187 citations)
  • Comparison of virus concentration methods for the RT-qPCR-based recovery of murine hepatitis virus, a surrogate for SARS-CoV-2 from untreated wastewater. (107 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Virus
  • Pathogen

His primary areas of study are Wastewater, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, Coronavirus disease 2019, Pandemic and Virology. The concepts of his Wastewater study are interwoven with issues in Sanitation and Digital polymerase chain reaction. His studies deal with areas such as Wastewater based epidemiology and Betacoronavirus as well as Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.

His Wastewater based epidemiology study spans across into subjects like Polymerase chain reaction, Veterinary medicine and Effluent. His research on 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak often connects related topics like Feces. There are a combination of areas like Microbiology and Tap water integrated together with his Persistence study.
