PhD Researcher


My research focuses on understanding the chemical reactions in water during the removal of persistent micropollutants in vacuum UV processes. Pharmaceuticals and PFAS are used as probe compounds to study the Advanced Oxidation Processes and Advanced Reduction Processes under vacuum UV irradiation.
