Research Project: Avery’s work revolves around identifying underlying factors causing dispersed bacterial growth and membrane fouling at a regional wastewater plant, and establishing a framework for finding a long-term solution.
Brett's research focuses on startup strategies for partial nitritation/anammox membrane aerated biofilm reactors (MABR) that will be used in mainstream nitrogen removal.
Cheng’s research focuses on smart wastewater management, including sensor data mining, robust wastewater process modeling, and predictive control.
Danny’s research interests focus on Biological nutrient removal in wastewater, Constructed wetlands treatment of decentralized wastewater, Biogas production from anaerobic digestion, and Stormwater treatment.
Huanqi (Haley) He
Huanqi (Haley)’s research focuses on the development of novel anoxic suspended growth/membrane aerated biofilm reactor.
Research Project: Changyoon is in the project on identifying the phosphorus removal characteristics through using biological and chemical processes in the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) Wastewater Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF), proceeding with SBR test, data analysis, regression, and updating SUMO modeling program.
Chaoqun is focusing on biological phosphorus removal in the Great Lakes Water Authority Wastewater Resource Recovery Facility. This research is currently being achieved through the SBR test, further wastewater characterization, and data analysis.
Tong Yu (Yet Yu)
Research Project: Yet is focusing on the wastewater primary treatment, including Phosphorous, BOD and COD removal by applying Ferric Chloride and polymers, in the Great Lakes Water Authority Detroit Wastewater Resource Recovery Facility. This research is currently being achieved through jar test, further wastewater characterization, and data analysis.
