Research Expertise: Chemical Systems Engineering | Environmental Systems

Wen's research interests are in the area of bioenvironmental engineering. He works on the development of biological engineering processes for environmental applications, such as biological fluidized bed processes for surface and ground water decontaminations and sequencing batch reactor processes for nitrogen removal. In nitrogen removal, he is examining mechanisms for denitrification , such as nitrogen removal of amines and biofilm nitrification/denitrification kinetics. He also focuses his efforts on environmental systems modeling, such as surface and ground water modeling, time series analysis of water and wastewater treatment facilities, and kinetic modeling of biodegradation processes.
