Biographical Info

Research Areas

My research involves the mathematical modeling of contaminants in aquatic ecosystems. This involves not only computer modeling but also laboratory and field studies to develop submodels that allow of parameter estimations use in the models.

Research Highlights

My research group has been involved in the development of a novel apparatus to measure Sediment Oxygen Demand (SOD) in rivers and lakes on a timely and cost effective manner. We have applied for a patent for the apparatus.
