My research group mission is to purify water, recycle wastewater and waste make the world a cleaner space. My teaching mission is to advance the "environmental way of thinking".
Our mission is to disinfect water using solar powered UV-LEDs
Development of off the grid disinfection technologies based on multi-spectral light emitting diodes (LED) which are solar operated as a point-of-use solution for water disinfection solution in rural areas.
Our mission is to monitor water in low income settings
A tool can be of use in designing and implementing water-quality monitoring at scale by combining a survey can be conducted via an easy-to-use smartphone application and water-quality parameters
Our mission is to develop biodegradable membranes
Develop membranes and materials that can replace conventional plastics (UF membrane filtration) and transform harmlessly into the environment at the end of their life-cycle via enhanced biological degradation
Our mission is to remove metals
Arsenic and Mercury are one of the top carcinogenic compounds. Arsenic can easily pollute the environment due to its persistent character, Heavy metals are unable to degrade. We are developing methods to increase sorption of these metals using Metal Organic Framework (MOF)
Our mission is to develop technologies to breakdown trace organic compounds
Removal of trace organic compounds micropollutants (OMPs) from water (wastewater effluent / groundwater) by a solar-photocatalytic membrane reactor (CatMemReac).
Our mission is to convert waste to biofuels
Production of ethanol from Lignocellulosic waste, like agri-waste and cardboard, by novel pre-treatment technology as ozone (O3) and producing other valuable products as nano-cellulose
Our mission is to use AI tools for water analysis
The gap between water analyses and their costs places significant organizational stress on water authorities. Our goal is to nowcast the presence of fecal coliforms (FC) in drinking water sources by applying a multilayer perceptron artificial neuron network (MLP) model
Technologies for Water Treatment
Municipal & Industrial Wastewater Treatment
Technology for Sustainable Development
In this course, we will gain knowledge of water quality parameters and standards, learn the principles of water treatment engineering units, and integrate the various treatment units to obtain safe water according to the intake water quality and the standards. We will perform basic calculations for designing water treatment systems according to the quantity and quality of water.
In this course, we will gain knowledge of the chemical and biological parameters that are critical in domestic wastewater treatment, we will understand the basic principles of municipal wastewater treatment units, and solve basic problems of designing standard sewage facilities using the simulation software BioWin is used for operation and process analysis in water and mainly wastewater treatment facilities to optimize the operation and avoid failures.
In the course technologies for sustainable development, we will understand the definitions and principles of sustainable technologies and technologies relevant in sustainable development and how to apply these concepts to design and engineering. We will discuss topics such as principles of green technologies, sustainable water and wastewater systems, renewable energy technologies, bioenergy, solar energy, and the role of sensors & monitoring & data science in achieving sustainable design.
Introduction to Environmental Engineering
An introductory course in environmental engineering deals with the development of technological solutions to the most burning environmental challenges that require a solution to the issue of disposable plastic treatment, reduction of emissions, waste recycling, water purification, wastewater, floods, etc. The objectives of the course are to integrate technological, technological, and social-environmental entrepreneurship.
