Research in our group addresses challenges at the interface between water, energy and materials. Specifically, our research is currently oriented along three main axes:

  • Environmental Nanotechnology
    Nano-bio interface, fabrication, transport and fate in the environment, risk assessment, photocatalytic properties, toxicity, new environmental technologies.
  • Membrane Science
    Membrane fabrication, systems development, optimization, cost modeling, applications (membrane distillation, water treatment, desalination, water reuse, fuel cell development).
  • Surface Chemistry and Particle Transport
    Morphology of particle deposits, particle transport, aggregation, filtration, particle characterization, and surface chemistry.
