Research Interests

Investigations of environmental applications of chemical engineering. Systems currently being investigated include flue gas cleanup using membrane absorbers, solid phase buffers for acid gas cleanup, and photocatalytic membrane reactors for air and water treatment. Additional interests lie in the area of the use of multimedia applications for improving chemical engineering education. The focus here is on the development of an interactive web site for engineering education.
