Our research is centered on water process engineering and water quality characterization. Our primary areas of expertise include: i) wildfire disturbances to drinking water systems, ii) reuse water quality, and iii) electrochemical treatment systems. We strive to provide novel information and tools to water systems as they face heightened pressures from anthropogenic and climatic impacts.

Analytical Expertise and Bench-scale Treatment Evaluations
Our lab characterizes water quality through routine and advanced methods. We perform bench-scale drinking water treatment studies to optimize conventional and advanced processes, and the effects on finished water quality, such as disinfection byproduct (DBP) formation.
