Research interests

Current research interests include (but are not limited to):

 

Solvent separation: pervaporation and pervaporation membrane reactors for (trans)esterification; solvent resistant nanofiltration or organic solvent nanofiltration; modeling of transport in nanofiltration.

 

Resource recovery: phosphate recovery from wastewater and other sources using (s)electrodialysis and pellet crystallization; concentrate treatment by using electrodialysis and forward osmosis; recycling of active pharmaceutical ingredients; membrane contactors and membrane crystallizers.

 

Water treatment: arsenic removal from potable water sources; membrane synthesis for nanofiltration and reverse osmosis; nanoparticles in membranes; membrane fouling; low cost & high performance membranes for potable water production; local adsorption materials for pesticides removal from drinking water sources; technologies to prevent intrusion of saline water into freshwater bodies.

Requests

· Prospective PhD students and postdocs: please send your CV, motivation letter and recommendation letters directly to me. However, be aware that only top students, irrespective of their nationality, will be considered. Have your credentials ready!

· Invitations to conferences (plenary/invited lectures): please send requests at least one year in advance; I cannot consider short-term arrangements (for a very small number of incredibly fantastic colleagues, I will do the impossible though).

· Invitations to be member of a PhD committee will be considered upon availability.

· Invitations to review papers, book chapters, project proposals: there is a high chance that I will accept to review; I am currently active reviewer for 74 different ISI journals, and some of them invite me over ten times per year (Journal of Membrane Science, Desalination, Journal of Applied Polymer Science, to name but a few). I review project proposals on a regular basis for funding bodies in over ten countries. I rarely refuse.

· Requests for Separation and Purification Technology or Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology: these have priority; I will try to reply within 24 hours. Please remember that review papers for Separation and Purification Technology should be sent for approval before submission!

· Requests to write book chapters or to edit books: have mercy, please skip me this time!
