My research focuses on recovering and reusing phosphorus from concentrates, e.g. antiscalants present in Reverse Osmosis concentrates. I look into the thermodynamic, kinetic and transport aspects of adsorption of organic phosphorus molecules on porous metal oxy-hydroxides. I also work with electrocoagulation using sacrificial electrodes to produce metal hydroxydes flocs which remove the phosphorus from solution.
