Level 1: I use chemistry to better understand how we interact with our environment
Level 2: I study advanced oxidation processes in natural and engineered systems
Level 3: I develop mechanistic models of redox processes of relevance to both advanced oxidation processes and natural trace metal biogeochemistry in order to better understand their relevance in natural systems and to enhance their application to solve engineering problems.
To develop the skills needed to apply rigorous, technically sound solutions to real world problems
To further our mechanistic understanding of redox processes of relevance to natural systems and treatment processes to enable better evaluation of natural system function and to allow for meaningful assessment of our impact upon such systems.
Many processes are applied in practice without a real understanding of how they work at a fundamental level; however, developing this level of understanding allows for much more powerful application and improvement of existing technology.
Whilst we have come a long way in our understanding of how we interact with natural systems, the knowledge that awaits our discovery is enormous.
