Statement:My interest in environmental engineering was built on an interest in chemistry. I liked chemical principles, but wanted to apply them to real problems. I eventually figured out that a way to do this was to focus on what happens to chemicals in the environment and to develop techniques to degrade water pollutants.
Area of Emphasis: Environmental, Geomechanics, Structural, Transportation, Water Resources
Statement: My teaching and research primarily focus on the treatment of public drinking water supplies and of municipal wastewater. At the undergraduate level, I teach CEGE 4502: Water and Wastewater Treatment. I have previously served as Director of Undergraduate Studies of the Civil Engineering major, during which time I advised 300+ students simultaneously, so I have a good deal of experience advising Civil Engineering students in all areas of the discipline.
Statement: I am passionate about understanding the interaction between polymer and plastic materials that we make, use, and throw away every day, and our water quality and ecosystem health. I hope that with this understanding, we can design a future without pollution.
