Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
My main area of research is characterization of natural organic matter and its effects on many environmental processes. As part of this interest, I have developed new methods for the characterization of natural organic matter (NOM) in water and the study of its three-dimensional structure. I am also involved in the study of the chemistry behind advanced oxidation processes for water and waste water treatment (including re-use applications), including ozone and UV based technologies. My research also includes the evaluation of the kinetics between OH radicals and NOM using pulse radiolysis. A third area of research is the characterization of disinfection by-products from NOM and micro-contaminants via advanced analytical techniques (ICP-MS, LC/Ms/Ms, etc). Our research team is also involved in the study and quantification of EDCs and PPCPs in the environment for which we have collaborations with numerous national and international partners.
