Research Interests

I am interested in the problem of water pollution, including point and non-point source pollution, biological and industrial contamination, and surface and ground water. I am also interested in determining pollution abatement through wastewater treatment and contamination/decontamination approaches in water distribution network. My work involves field sampling, laboratory simulations and modelling approaches. I am also in charge of the Water and Soil Laboratory at ATREE.
