Associate Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Undergraduate Director of Environmental Engineering.
Cake Filtration, Sedimentation, Particulate Transport through Porous Media, Water Quality Engineering
My research focuses on cake filtration, sedimentation, transport in porous media, bacterial transport, groundwater phenomena, and analytical methodology; modeling the transport of particles, migration and capture of solid particles through porous media; development of mathematical models for the cake thickness, the concentration of solid particles, the conservation of mass equations for fluid, and suspended and captured solid particles along the cake thickness, and functional relations among porosity, permeability, and pressure.
My research is applicable in oil well drilling operations, water and wastewater treatment, activated sludge processes, ground water, solid-liquid separation and other industrial filtration processes.
