He is the director of the DRICKS program, which is a collaboration between Chalmers, University of Gothenburg and Swedish municipalities. DRICKS is a framework project consisting of individual research projects with the objective of providing a safe and healthy drinking water. Research in the entire drinking water system is carried out – from source to tap. Thomas supervises several PhD students.

Renewal strategies of drinking water pipes. The project analyzes the need for renewal of water pipes from a health and economical perspective.
