Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, June 1992
My research uses biotechnology for environmental applications related to water quality. Current projects focus on the biotransformation of organic chemicals, nutrient removal, biohazards, and chemical detection. I also conduct research in advanced oxidation technologies and water infrastructure security.
