The Snyder Group focuses on safe and sustainable water for urban, agricultural, and industrial needs. Our team expertise is composed of three major disciplines: engineering, chemistry, and toxicology. Our engineering research focuses on the development of water treatment technologies that minimize energy consumption and maximize water quality. In chemistry, we develop and apply methodologies to identify and quantify both known and unknown environmental contaminants using a wide-array of state of the art analytical instrumentation. Our toxicology research primarily involves the use of in vitro bioassays to quantify cumulative toxicity for complex chemical mixtures.
By combining these three areas of research, we are able to comprehensively address challenging environmental issues such as potable water reuse, municipal bio-solids for agricultural applications and novel disinfection byproducts.
