Specific projects are developed based on student background, and subject to research needs at the time student is accepted. Dr. Sadmani’s research specializes in the study of drinking water and wastewater with emphasis on removing emerging micro-pollutants via low- (ultrafiltration) and high-pressure membranes (nanofiltration, reverse osmosis) and nanomaterial-enhanced membrane-based hybrid processes.
Start Date: 1/11/2022 - End Date: 4/27/2022
Type of Project
Student responsibilities vary depending on research project needs, and may include conducting literature review, preparing and maintaining laboratory glassware, and performing basic water quality analysis. Students will assist the graduate students in Dr. Sadmani’s lab with experimental setup assembly, and sample preparation and analysis for detecting contaminants in various water matrices.
10 hours per week hour(s)
Students having proficiently completed coursework in chemistry and calculus with a minimum of "B" and are scheduled to take, or have completed, ENV3001 (Introduction to Environmental Engineering). Students will be required to attend UCF's laboratory safety classes prior to starting any work; the safety classes are offered by UCF Environmental Health and Safety intermittently throughout the year. Knowledge of word, excel, statistical and data analysis software is a plus. Response and review of an application do not indicate a guarantee of acceptance.
