The broad topics of interest of Dr Faisal I. Hai are: Advanced water and wastewater treatment, Environmental biotechnology and Hazardous waste management. Dr. Hai is one of the key teaching and research academics of the Strategic Water Infrastructure Laboratory at the School of Civil, Mining and Environmental (CME) Engineering, UOW (www.uow.edu.au/~faisal). After receiving his BSc (1st class Honours) in Civil Engineering from BUET, Bangladesh, Dr. Hai completed his Masters and PhD in Environmental Engineering on 2004 and 2007, respectively from the University of Tokyo, Japan. Before joining UOW he completed a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) at the University of Tokyo. From June 2009 to April 2011, Dr. Hai successfully served as the supervisor of the Environmental Engineering Laboratory and as a UOW Vice Chancellor’s research fellow, respectively within the School of CME. Dr. Hai has taken up a continuing teaching and research lecturer position at CME from May 2011. Dr. Hai is the recipient of the prestigious outstanding lecture award by the Japan Society on Water Environment in 2010. Building on his vast experience of working with Professor Kazuo Yamamoto, the inventor of the membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology, at the University of Tokyo, Dr. Hai continues to carry out exciting research on the application of hybrid membrane processes for the removal of biologically persistent compounds (especially micropollutants) from water and wastewater.
