Environmental Engineering Laboratory (WEEL) is a multinational research team as we work with scientists and engineers from Japan and other countries to address the recent global challenges and tackle the latest environmental issues to find possible solutions.

In the Water and Environmental Engineering Laboratory, we believe that a safe and clean environment is essential for maintaining sustainable societies, ecosystems, and economies. We study environmental remediation techniques, environmental protection and renewable energy generation. Hence. We are using the advantages and the benefits of nanotechnology to protect and clean our environment, especially for water treatment, renewable energy and resources recovery from waste.

Outline Activities
My research interests concern the principles and techniques from science and engineering to develop novel methods for sustainable energy production and contaminants removal from water and wastewater as well as mathematical models for studying the underlying mechanisms of contaminants in water, wastewater and groundwater. Upon the development of novel methods, safe and sustainable energy and water resources could be achieved which is important for maintaining sustainable societies, ecosystems and economies. To this end, I conducted several experiments and developed mathematical models in this research area.
