Dr. Sadrzadeh researches the fundamental and applied aspects of membrane materials and process development, focusing on their applications in industrial/residential wastewater treatment and energy harvesting from wastewater. The contributions made by Dr. Sadrzadeh during his academic career thus far have led to the development and application of novel composite and nanocomposite membranes for water and gas treatment. He has an h-index of 32 (according to Scopus) with his 120+ refereed publications cited more than 2400 times. He is currently directing Advanced Water Research Lab (AWRL) at the University of Alberta that is equipped with membrane and nanoparticle synthesis and characterization equipment as well as membrane filtration systems. In this unique membrane-specialized facility in western Canada, ten graduate students and four postdoctoral fellows are working under his supervision on cutting-edge membrane technologies. He already graduated 7 PhD and 11 MSc students. Dr. Sadrzadeh is collaborating with nine oil and gas companies through Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA), IBM, National Research Council (NRC, Canada), Natural Resource Canada (NRCan, Canada) on the synthesis of high-performance membranes. His research work will be continued on the synthesis of advanced polymeric membrane materials and processes to produce clean water and clean energy from wastewater.
