Research interests:

My research interests cover a variety of environmental engineering topics, with my primary research area being nutrient removal and recovery. I am particularly interested in the technological implementation of biological phosphorus removal and chemical phosphorus recovery. I am also interested in leachate treatment, biomass fermentation, and anaerobic digestion.

The goal of my research is to develop sustainable technologies for water and waste treatment processes that will reduce the environmental burden, carbon footprint, and greenhouse gas emissions. I am also interested in community outreach to promote environmental awareness.
