Bio/Research

You could say that Darko Joksimovic was born into his profession. Growing up in Yugoslavia, both his parents were civil engineers. At one point, they spent two and a half years working on a dam project in Libya. Then a small child, Joksimovic would roam freely around the construction site. “In those days, health and safety wasn’t as strict as it is now,” he says, laughing.

Today, as a Toronto Metropolitan alumni, Joksimovic shares his parents’ interest in water-related engineering. His research focuses on urban water issues, particularly how cities discharge stormwater and wastewater. “The continuing degradation of water quality as a result of human activity is a very complex issue to address,” he says. “It crosses many disciplines, political boundaries and responsibilities.”

Passionate about continuing the line of water engineers, Joksimovic loves to pass knowledge on to his students. “It is incredibly satisfying to train the next generation of water professionals who will apply their ideas and capability with new technologies to move the industry forward.”
