School of Chemical Engineering

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology


My current research focuses on developing a robust sustainable technology for the removal of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) and microplastics from wastewater.

With 15 years of professional experience in Wastewater Treatment and Environmental Sustainability, I specialize in minimizing resource usage and advanced chemical management for large industries. As a former Sustainability Manager for multinational companies, I drive eco-friendly solutions, aligning industry practices with environmental stewardship.
