Research Expertise

What We Do:

  1. Catalytic water treatment. We work on Pd-based catalytic hydrogenation and other catalysts, such as Ru.
  2. Disinfection byproducts (DBPs). We focus on emerging DBPs that are not regulated.
  3. Machine learning for water quality prediction. We develop models and apply them to our water research.
