Dr. Qilin Li teaches courses and conducts research on physical chemical processes that impact water quality in natural aqueous as well as engineered treatment systems. Dr. Li’s current research focuses on the behaviors of environmental colloids and macromolecules at aqueous-solid interfaces and the subsequent impact on their fate and transport in natural and engineered systems. By studying natural water quality and advanced water and wastewater treatment technologies, Dr. Li is devoted to finding a way to sustainable water supply.
