Research Summary

My research is focused on the application of treatment wetlands for wastewater remediation. Through the development of a multimedia contaminant-fate model, I am developing a tool to predict the behaviour of chemicals in a treatment wetland system. This model will be useful to understand how the design, operation, and surrounding environment affects the removal efficiency for contaminants in different wastewaters.
