1. Water Quality Monitoring and Modelling: quantifying and modelling the behaviour of recalcitrant metal and nutrient contaminants. Complementary research I have led includes developing algal-bacterial biomass as a second generation biofuel and modelling flow dynamics and water quality in living roofs systems.2. Ecological Treatment Technologies: designing clean water engineering solutions that are holistically sustainable (e.g. ecologically, economically and culturally). Includes engineered wetlands; storm water bioinfiltration systems, green roof technology and innovative technologies such as the patented Storminator™ technology I co-invented. Applications developed for the mining, stormwater and agricultural sectors. 3. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA): environmental impact(s) of engineered water treatment systems such as bioreactors and infiltration systems using LCA modelling software (Simapro) and Ecological Footprint metrics.4. Engineering Education: pedagogy of engineering curricula to enhance engineering students competency in sustainability and biculturalism.
