Research Interests:  

Research interests focus on physical-chemical and biological treatment processes for water, hazardous wastes and industrial and municipal wastewaters.  On-going research includes dissolved air flotation, membrane filtration, disinfection and advanced oxidation processes for drinking water and hazardous wastes.  Research strives to integrate fundamental physical chemical and biological principles into practical equations/models for the selection, design and operation of engineered treatment systems.

Center Involvement:

  • Project Lead; Project 1: New Strategies for Technology Assessment and Implementation
  • Activity Lead; Project 1: New Strategies for Technology Assessment and Implementation, Activity 6: Polychromatic UV Technologies for Virus Inactivation

The activities of Project 1 will be integrated and coordinated by Dr. Jim Malley, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of New Hampshire (UNH).  Jim is presently Chairman of the UNH Environmental Engineering Program. He has more than 30 years of experience in the drinking water field. Jim’s managerial experience includes currently being Director of the UNH Environmental Research Group, which averages $5M per year in federal research funding expenditures. He served as Co-Director of the EPA sponsored UNH WTTAC for small systems, Founding President of the International UV Association (IUVA) and Chairman of the Board of the AWWA Technical and Educational Council. Jim has worked with thirty small and very small drinking water systems in ten states and seven countries. Jim provides in-kind technical assistance on small system issues to state regulators throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic states.
