The research work mainly focused towards rendering reliability and probability design improvements for Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering systems. Assessment of variability and spatial heterogeneity associated with the Geotechnical design parameters. Development of sustainable Geosynthetic-Clay liners for MSW containment facility using industrial by-products. Application of probabilistic optimization and GMM for the design improvements in MSW landfill slope stability analysis. Sustainable amelioration of problematic soils using industrial by-products.
This research work is primarily focused on the treatment of water and wastewater systems focusing on the emerging contaminants like micro and nano plastics, carcinogenic compounds etc.
This research focuses on all the aspects of aquatic ecology, primarily wetlands. This includes application of Environmetrics in assessment of water quality, sedimentology, heavy metal contamination in wetland ecosystems, and nutrient dynamics for assessing the eutrophication problems.
The problem of the current world is handling and mansing waste produced. Hence, this research domain primarily focuses on different aspects of waste management, including solid waste, industrial and municipal waste, etc., and converting them into useful products that will help in waste reduction. This domain also focuses on the principle of waste to energy concept, wherein different wastes will be converted into sustainable products that are energy efficient.
