Environmental engineering seeks to study and minimize the impact of anthropogenic processes on the environment. The focus of our department in this research area is:
- air quality planning and management
- ambient air quality
- climate effects of aerosols
- development of advanced aerosol sensors and instruments, data retrieval algorithms, and measurement networks
- indoor air quality
- green engineering including life cycle assessments
- satellite remote sensing and global modeling
Advancing our understanding of aerosol science and technology that underlie the formation, growth, measurement and modeling of systems of small particles in gases.
- bioelectrochemical systems
- food-energy-water nexus
- microbiomes as environmental sensors and public health sentinels
- resource recovery
- wastewater treatment
Research at the interface of environmental engineering, systems biology, and microbiology.
- aerosol instrumentation
- biogeological cycling
- carbon dioxide sequestration
- fate and transport of heavy metals, radionuclides, organic contaminates, and nanoparticles
- organic chemical reactions in the environment
- membrane processes
Addresses important questions in environmental chemistry and remediation, mitigation of environmental impacts of energy technologies, and environmental quality of natural systems.
