At the Environmental Engineering Laboratory, we conduct research that bears on some of today’s most serious environmental issues. Our works includes the study of:

  • Receptor models for evaluation of fate and transport of organic pollutants in the aquatic environment
  • Mercury liberation and capture from coal-fired power plants: fly ash and activated carbon
  • The response of biological components in drinking water infrastructure to biological warfare agents
  • Developing an on-chip magnetic bead biosensor for real-time and remote detection of biological warfare agents
