    Research Interest

    Investigation the fate of organic and inorganic pollutants in the water, air and soil environments.

    Assessment, monitoring and remediation of water, groundwater and soils contaminated with hazardous pollutants.

    Assessing the fate of the Disinfection By-products (DBPs) formed when disinfecting water using chlorine, ozone and chlorine dioxide.

    Currently, working on the treatment of groundwater contaminated with MTBE, BTEX and other VOCs using Advanced Oxidation Processes (i.e. the combination of Ultraviolet light (UV),

    hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and ozone (O3))

    Also doing intensive research on the treatment of contaminated water using nano-scale photo-catalytic degradation by Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs), Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and N-Doped

    Titania.
