Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the areas of contaminant fate, transport, and remediation. I am particularly interested in aggressive remediation technologies for contaminated soils and emerging contaminants in the environment such as fire retardants and other micropollutants.

Teaching Interests

Current Teaching: Contaminated Land, Pollution & Rehabilitation of Degraded Ecosystems, Chemistry & Materials Science

Past Teaching: Statistics & Model Analysis, Water & Wastewater Treatment Design

Education/Academic qualification

Doctor of Philosophy, Rutgers University

Master of Science, Rutgers University

Bachelor of Science, Johns Hopkins University
