Water Quality Systems Engineering

Water Quality Systems Engineering research focuses on the quality of water in natural and engineered systems ranging from micro to macro scales.

Current research areas include:

  • Hexavalent Chromium Occurrence and Treatment in Drinking Water

  • Advanced Oxidation and Radical-driven Processes

  • Water purification catalysts and pollutant detection technologies based on biomimetic metal complexes

  • Chemical destruction of recalcitrant contaminants (inorganic, organic, and perfluorinated) in water and wastewater

  • Environmental behavior study and recovery technology for rare elements
