Ph.D. Students

Avery Carlson

Environmental Engineering

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 Wagner

Environmental Engineering

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 Yang

Environmental Engineering

Cheng’s research focuses on smart wastewater management, including sensor data mining, robust wastewater process modeling, and predictive control.

Daehyun Ko

Environmental Engineering

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

Environmental Engineering

Huanqi (Haley)’s research focuses on the development of novel anoxic suspended growth/membrane aerated biofilm reactor. 

 

Master’s Students

Ross Vander Meulen

Environmental Engineering

Research Project: Ross is focusing on the biological and chemical phosphorus removal in the Great Lakes Water Authority Wastewater Resource Recovery Facility. This research is currently being achieved through further wastewater characterization, data analysis and regression, and model simulation with SUMO.

Tong Yu (Yet Yu)

Environmental Engineering

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.

Chaoqun Cheng

Environmental Engineering

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.
