Welcome to the research website of Mei Sun in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
I am interested in developing solutions for sustainable water treatment/reuse and resolving issues related to the water-energy nexus, using fundamental knowledge and experimental methods in water chemistry, environmental electrochemistry, catalytic chemistry and biogeochemistry. Specific areas of interest include:
- Innovative treatment technologies to remove emerging contaminants from water and wastewater
- Fate, transport, and degradation of contaminants in various environmental matrices
- Contaminated subsurface remediation
I am starting my lab at UNC Charlotte and am looking for passionate students. If you are interested in topics listed on my Research page and would like to join the group, please email me with details on your background and research interests for further discussion on the research topics/application process.
