My doctoral research is focused on developing multi-scale models for advanced water quality management in drinking water distribyution systems. I use ab-initio computational chemistry methods to develop detailed chemsitry models to describe chemical reactions that lead to water quality deterioration. I develop meso-scale reactive-transport models to characterize the spatio-temporal distribution of chemical species in the distribution system. I use system scale optimization techniques to understand the optimal operational schemes in terms of water qualtiy reaching the consumer's tap.
