His research focuses on the fate of trace organic contaminants in the urban water cycle. Within this area, he has investigated advanced treatment systems employed in potable water reuse and managed natural systems, such as constructed wetlands and storm water harvesting systems. He also has developed new approaches for characterizing and remediating organic contaminants in groundwater and soil.
He is the Plato Malozemoff Chair in Mineral Engineering in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. He is also co-director of the Berkeley Water Center, and the deputy director of the National Science Foundation’s Engineering Research Center for Re-Inventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt).
His honors include the 2014 Athalie Richardson Irvine Clarke Prize for Excellence in Water Research, National Academy of Engineering Gilbreth Lecturer, Fulbright Senior Scholar (Australia), and the Paul L. Busch Award for Applied Water Research.
