Dr. Bellona graduated with a Ph.D. from the Colorado School of Mines in 2007 and worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate with AQWATEC until December 2009. Dr. Bellona's research interest focused on understanding the role that physical-chemical properties of membranes and solutes play in the rejection of organic micropollutants. This research was directed at qualitatively and quantitatively describing the mass transport of these compounds of concern in nanofiltration and reverse osmosis membranes. Dr. Bellona has been the lead researcher in projects funded by WateReuse Foundation, Water Research Foundation, and NSF/MAST. Dr. Bellona joined Clarkson University as an assistant professor in January 2012.
