Research Interests

Environmental Engineering

Research interests are the development of remediation technologies for soils contaminated with hazardous wastes. He has investigated innovative techniques for the remediation of petroleum hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents such as: electro-kinetics (E-K), soil vapor extraction (SVE), in situ air sparging (IAS), surfactant enhanced soil flushing, in situ biological treatment and in situ chemical oxidation. Additionally, his research interests include studies of the transport of organic chemicals in the vadose zone.
