About Alireza Khataee

I am currently a professor working in Research Laboratory of Advanced Water and Wastewater Treatment Processes, Department of Applied Chemistry at the University of Tabriz. My primary research interests include synthesis, characterization and application of nanostructured materials (TiO2 and ZnO) for photocatalytic removal of organic compounds from wastewater. I am also working on Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) including photocatalytic process, UV/H2O2, Fenton, Photo-Fenton, Electro-Fenton, Peroxicoagulation and Electrocoagulation processes, and also modeling and optimization of AOPs using Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and Response Surface Methodology (RSM).
In my biological treatment of wastewaters projects, I frequently collaborate with colleagues in the Department of Biology, at Faculty of Science, University of Tabriz.
