Research Interests:

  • Recommended a new strategy for sludge land application, reducing sludge-phosphorus phyto-availability as a means to maximize soil capacity for sludge disposal.
  • Studied green chemistry, water-soluble and solid-state speciation of phosphorus in stabilized sewage sludge.
  • Developed a novel phosphorus phytoavailability method for soil by a rapid bioassay
  • Proposed a mechanism for phosphorus retention in high pH soils amended with stabilized sludge.
  • Developed static cation-exchange resin impregnated membrane adsorbed potassium method for soil potassium testing.
