My general interests are to study the environmental fate and transport of hybrid nanomaterials. I am specifically interested in understanding the role of individual nanomaterials in the aggregation and deposition of hybrid nanomaterials like fullerene-SWNT peapods. I am also keen to look into the concrete strengthening by inclusion of exfoliated graphene in the matrix.My previous research experience includes the treatment of pharmaceutical wastewater. I have been working under the supervision of Dr. Saleh sincce January 2010.


Currently I am working on following projects:
