I am an environmental engineer who is interested in studying the impacts of human activities on natural water system. Our lab aims to understand chemical and microbial contaminants in natural (e.g. lakes, streams, and estuary) and engineered (e.g. sewer system, treatment facility and stormwater systems) and develop improved treatment technologies and mitigation strategies.
