Our group is involved in the design, preparation, characterization, and testing of materials and processes for environmental applications. We also focus on quantifying the risk of nanomaterials on the environment and identifying future areas of research necessary to realize safe deployment of promising nanomaterial applications.

Our Research

Nanomaterials for water treatment

Development of advanced water-treatment technologies which leverage the reactive and tunable properties of nanomaterials for selectivity toward priority pollutants, cost-efficiency and sustainability

Nanotoxicity

Using model phospholipid bilayer membranes, we fundamentally study interactions of living cells and emerging nanomaterials of different chemical composition, orientation, and morphology

Advanced Oxidation

Practical oxidation technologies for organic contaminant removal from wastewater and groundwater
