My research is related to water quality engineering with specific focus on water supply, treatment and distribution system infrastructure. Specific research projects could involve a variety of subjects: aqueous chemistry, advanced water treatment processes (membranes, aeration, disinfection, adsorption, coagulation, ion exchange, advanced oxidation), and the study of distribution systems (internal corrosion control and disinfection by-products). Specific activities depend on the student’s background and schedule availability.
Start Date: 1/10/2022 - End Date: 4/30/2022
Type of Project
Students that have 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) are welcome to apply. Students will be required to attend and satisfactory complete 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 are a plus. Response and review of an application does not indicate a guarantee of acceptance.
10 hours per week hour(s)
Student responsibilities vary depending on research project needs and requirements. Duties will be focused on initially working in a laboratory designed for aqueous chemistry studies. Students will learn proper methods for laboratory glassware and equipment cleaning and maintenance. Students will also learn to perform general water quality analysis such as gravimetric analysis, titrations, pH, conductivity and temperature analysis, and other general water quality data collection. Sometimes students will participate in performing technical literature reviews, data compilation, data mining and preparing data graphs.
