Research Interests

The Theory and Technology for Safety Drinking Water, specially focus on Natural organic matter (NOM):  (a) To develop new approaches to characterize the reactivity of NOM at environmental-relevant concentration; (b) To quantify on micro-level the behavior of NOM in aquatic environments and engineered treatment systems; (c) To evaluate health risks of NOM, especially in the context of formation mechanisms and risks of iodinated disinfection by-products formed by NOM as precursor; and (d) To develop new technologies to remove NOM and control its behavior.
