Dr. Clifford has been involved in the development of a number of water and waste treatment technologies. His research focus is on the development and validation of new environmental and energy efficient technologies for water treatment, wastewater treatment, sludge treatment, and odour & gas treatment.
Dr. Goggins’ research interests linked to the activities of the Institute for Environment, Marine and Energy include the development of sustainable construction technologies, energy efficient buildings, embodied energy analysis, ocean energy, structural control and health monitoring, and computational mechanics.
College of Engineering and Informatics
Dr. Hartnett is the Research Director of the Marine Modelling Centre. Activities within the centre include: deep ocean water circulation modelling; estuarine and coastal circulation modelling; nutrient modelling; water quality modelling; biological modelling; heavy metal modelling; wave climate modelling; and modelling air-sea interfaces.
Dr. Keane is the leader of the Sustainability and Built Environment priority research area. He is a lecturer in Civil Engineering, and the founder and NUI Galway Head of the Informatics Research Unit for Sustainable Engineering (IRUSE), which is dually affiliated to UCC.
Stephen’s interests are in the numerical modelling of marine waters from shallow coastal waters to the deep ocean. Particular processes of interest are tidal circulation, transport of pollutants, water quality and primary production.
Dr. Zhan’s research interest is to develop a sustainable agricultural industry by studying the environmental and energy issues: (i) biofuels production from agro-industrial wastes and crop by-products (ii) advanced technologies for nitrogen removal from wastewater (iii) development of adsorbents and nanomaterials for water supply, wastewater treatment and biofuel production.
