The principal goal of our group research is to deliver clean water with a minimum carbon footprint and energy cost via the design and application of advanced technologies. 

Specific Research Interests: 

  1. PV-MD for decentralized fresh water production and eletricity (video)

  2. Waste heat driven processes for clean water production

  3. Solar crystallization based brine treatment and desalination with zero liquid discharge (ZLD)

  4. Water vapor sorbent for atmospheric water harvest and energy-related applications (e.g., smart cooling and energy conversion)

  5. Resource recovery from wastewaters, brine, and seawater

  6. Electrochemical processes for environmental applications

  7. Environmental nanotechnology

  8. Membrane separation
