About Me

As a postdoctoral research associate at Michigan State University, I am currently working with the Global Water Pathogen Project. The objective of this project is to reduce the lack of sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation by updating knowledge on water pathogens using advanced information technologies, publishing the information, and disseminating a state-of-the-art reference work on water-related disease risks and intervention measures.

My research interests include removal and inactivation of waterborne pathogens during drinking water treatment and distribution. I am broadly interested in the engineering of water quality/water treatment processes, as well as working to resolve the challenges in making these processes accessible to developing countries.
