Current Research Activities

� Synthesis and applications of nanoparticles and nanomaterials, including functionalizing magnetic nanoparticles for protein separation and enzyme immobilization, synthesizing nanostructured materials for catalytic processes in energy conversion � Particulate aggregation to understand the mechanisms of aggregate formation, hydrodynamic behaviour, micro-properties, and implications to macro-properties, e.g. dewatering behaviour, sediment compaction, selective precipitation, sludge densification � Aggregate characterization, using different tools including light scattering/obscuration methods, image analysis, tomography. Applications on water treatments, mechanical bioseparation, and formulation/use of personal care products. � Simulation and modeling by integration of 3D imaging and modeling tools to predict system performance from micro-properties.
