Research Area

My research focuses on developing a fundamental understanding of the design and optimization of processes and products for environmental applications, waste minimization and energy recovery.

Research Interests

Wastewater treatment for dyes and metals using adsorption, ion exchange and ozonation; biopolymers from crab and prawn shells; processing design; ions dioxin removal; MSW processing; production of new adsorbents.
