Personal profile


Currently I am working on the improvement of polyelectrolyte multilayer membranes to remove micro-pollutants from water. Many small polluting molecules such as hormones, pesticides and medicines are not removed during water treatment and end up in surface water or even drinking water. Our goal is to achieve removal of such molecules in an economically viable fashion. 

Research interests

I am interested in contributing to a more sustainable world with my research.
