Civil and Environmental Engineering
I believe that public policy for water quality protection must focus on the effective use of financial resources and that goal attainability and related cost-benefit must be principal factors in establishing criteria and standards. With respect to plant design, I promote a holistic materials-balance approach, considering the impacts of processes on other plant components, an understanding of the impacts of peak loading periods and their implications for design, effective plant hydraulic design, and process configuration and layout to facilitate meeting future capacity and treatment requirements. I am interested in planning, design and commissioning of water and wastewater engineering projects, focusing on selecting affordable and sustainable solutions to protect water and environmental resources.I emphasize the importance of data collection programs, pilot testing where appropriate, and evaluation of data to support design decisions.I believe that an additional significant component in providing affordable solutions is making the best use of existing facilities and incorporating them where possible into an effective upgraded system.
