I am Environmental Engineer and Group Leader with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). I focus on PFAS treatment at the Center for Environmental Solutions and Emergency Response (CESER), Cincinnati, OH. My research targets the development of new materials and techniques to adsorb and/or degrade emerging water pollutants (e.g. PFAS, DBPs, PPCPs, illicit drugs) as well as the mobility of new classes of contaminants in the environment (e.g. microplastics). My research at the EPA’s Office of Research and Development targets the removal of micropollutants (mostly PFAS) and the assessment of various separation and destruction technologies from lab-scale to Superfund sites.
