research overview

  • My group focuses on applied related to inorganic contaminants, drinking water treatment, distribution system water quality and building water quality. Specifically, our group investigates how the deterioration of treated drinking water quality can be caused by complex and poorly understood mechanisms, such as plumbing corrosion and microbial regrowth, and under water reuse conditions. Ongoing topics of research include: disinfection byproduct formation in building plumbing systems, corrosion mechanisms that influence opportunistic pathogen growth and point of use filter efficacy for inorganic contaminant removal.
