Professor (Research) of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Emeritus
BioReinhard studies the fate of organic substances in the subsurface environment and develops technologies for the remediation of groundwater contaminated with chlorinated and non-chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds. His research is concerned with mechanistic aspects of chemical and biological transformation reactions in soils, natural waters, and treatment systems.
Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering
BioProf. Rajagopal's primary research focus is on advancing the design, optimization and data-driven modelling of electric power systems. His work involves creating novel sensing and control platforms, robust data processing algorithms and dynamical statistical decision methods. He has also extensively worked on sensing infrastructure systems and transportation networks.
