Dr. Ray’s research interests include functionalized composites, surface chemistry, and targeted removal and recovery of wastewater constituents. Dr. Ray is interested in a holistic and fundamental understanding of mechanisms governing composite performance from conceptualization to application, as well as ways to incorporate these new adsorbents into existing wastewater treatment infrastructure.

Current Projects

  •  selective removal of recalcitrant perfluoralkyl substances from wastewater
  • design of inexpensive modified adsorbents for stormwater treatment during aquifer recharge.
