Expertise

I work in the field of isotope hydrology, tracer techniques, urban diffuse pollution, water quality, wastewater treatment, metal speciation and toxicity along with the impact of climate change on in water resources. Lately, I have been working on transport and fate of contaminants in aquatic environment, nutrient management in surface waters, toxicity, resource recovery, biotic ligand modelling, health impacts due to geogenic contaminants as well as nano-materials to find sustainable solutions.
