Dr. Hua has secured funding for and completed research
projects on various aspects of industrial ecology and sustainability, water
pollution control technologies, environmental chemistry, contaminant fate, and
remediation technologies. Dr.
Hua’s publications have been cited over 600 times. One major theme in Dr. Hua’s research is technology
development for water pollution control.
Dr. Hua’s work during the past decade has significantly advanced the
choice of viable technologies. She
has conducted research on innovative technologies such as supercritical water
oxidation, ultrasonic irradiation, and engineered photochemical systems. The outcomes of her research provide
information on the mechanisms by which water pollutants are destroyed by
specific technologies. This
information is crucial for optimizing treatment efficiency.
