The research is mainly in the area of
application of fluid mechanics and colloid
interfacial phenomena to membrane filtration. We
currently focus on the enhancement of membrane
filtration by a combination of crossflow
shearing action and an electric field in
bio-suspensions separation and Nanofiltrations.
The current research concentrates on developing
the techniques for determining the zeta
potentials in the outer surface of tubular
membranes. The next step is to develop the
techniques for on-line monitoring membrane
fouling via the electrokinetics measurement.
The research is mainly in developing the DCMD
models for flat-sheet and tubular modules and
the process simulation.
