My research is focused in Point-of-Entry Water Treatment Systems for Potable Reuse. I aim to investigate ceramic membranes in combination with catalytic oxidation as a viable approach for point-of-entry potable reuse treatment while minimizing energy and chemical inputs. This research is part of the Engineered Systems Thrust of the new ERC funded by the NSF. My faculty advisor is Professor Drewes.
