overview

My research focuses on (1) chemistry and application of ferrates, (2) formation, fate, and toxicity of silver and gold engineered and natural nanoparticles in aquatic environment, (3) applications of ferrites to destroy toxins and pollutants under solar light, and apply carbon-based materials to remediate contaminated water
