Faculty: Vadas, Timothy M.
Department: Civil & Environmental Engineering
Excerpt: Dr. Vadas’ recent research efforts have focused on water treatment of emerging contaminants using novel, high surface area sorbents. The focus is on the development of a chemical surface modification scheme for nanofibrous materials due to the difficulty in functionalization using traditional methods without losing significant mass or strength. In addition, we explore novel functional […]
