Séminaire de Samuel SNOW
faculty of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Louisiana State University
“Innovative Applications of Chlorine as an Advanced Oxidant:
Mitigating Bacterial Repair during UV Disinfection and Degrading Micropollutants in Wastewater”
Dr. Samuel Snow joined the faculty of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Louisiana State University as an assistant professor in 2016. Dr. Snow has a B.S. in Earth and Atmospheric Science and a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering, both from the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2015, he worked briefly at the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, followed by an appointment as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Michigan State University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. His research interests include advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), photochemical technologies, and the role of sunlight in natural systems. Specifically, Dr. Snow’s research group is exploring the use of UV-LEDs to develop “smart” disinfection and AOP systems; additionally, the group seeks to overcome challenges to practical photocatalysis by investigating the quenching of reactive oxygen species in photochemical treatment processes of natural or wastewaters. A driving theme in Dr. Snow’s research group is to approach the practical challenge of developing low-cost, sustainable, and robust water treatment systems by investigating the underlying science of the technologies.
