Faculty of Applied Science, Chemical and Biological Engineering



Artificial Photosynthetic Systems: Artificial photosynthesis involves capturing energy from the sun and storing it in the form of chemical fuels. The focus of this research is to create engineered solar fuel generators for the photocatalytic production of hydrogen, a leading candidate for the fuel of the future

Photoreactors for Water Purification: The ultraviolet (UV) reactor is today’s fastest growing water treatment technology. The primary emphasis of this research is to formulate the next generation of UV photolytic and photocatalytic reactors.

Computational Modeling of Chemical and Biological Systems: This research program focuses on combining fundamental physical models with CFD to develop chemical and biological reactor performance models for virtual prototyping and design optimization. We also perform experimental analysis, including laser-based imaging techniques, for model evaluation.
