INDIRA DE MENEZES CASTRO

Post Nominals BSc, BHon, MSc
Biography My research is focused on developing a pilot scale modular photocatalytic treatment unit that can be deployed for source management of biocide discharge. Over the course of my studies, I will investigate the effects of titanium dioxide and carbon nitride photocatalysis on the degradation of several commonly occurring types of biocidal agents.

Prior to my PhD, I was involved in research involving the removal of cyanobacteria and their toxins from water using different approaches, including photocatalytic treatment. My work experience also includes water and wastewater quality analysis.
