About me



My research focuses on understanding of how physical, geochemical, and mineralogical processes can influence on sustainable waste treatment techniques. My multidisciplinary knowledge and solemn interest in environmental problems provide me an innovative approach toward waste stabilization, the production of value-added products, and energy generation.

Research interests

Specific areas of interest include but not limited to: applied and technical mineralogy and geochemistry of industrial waste products and construction materials; evaluation of products derived from thermal conversion of municipal solid waste (MSW) using mineralogical techniques; resource recovery from waste streams; removal/stabilization of hazardous components from/in incineration residues; evaluation of innovative technologies for bio-remediation of heavy metals (Pb, Zn, Cu) in fly ash material; green energy production (GEP) in the form of hydrogen gas from municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) residues (bottom ash and fly ash); utilization of MSWI residue as a recycled material for concrete production; and; anthropogenic contamination of soils and sediments.
