About the Author
Dr. Jeff (Jih-Fen) Kuo worked in environmental engineering industries for over ten years before joining the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at California State University, Fullerton in 1995. Areas of research in environmental engineering include dechlorination of halogenated aromatics by ultrasound, fines/bacteria migration through porous media, biodegradability of heavy hydrocarbons, surface properties of composite mineral oxides, kinetics of activated carbon adsorption, wastewater filtration, THM formation potential of ion exchange resins, UV disinfection, sequential chlorination, nitrification/denitrification, removal of target compounds using nanoparticles, persulfate oxidation of persistent chemicals, microwave oxidation for wastewater treatment, landfill gas recovery and utilization, greenhouse gases control technologies, fugitive methane emissions from gas industry, and storm water runoff treatment. He received a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from National Taiwan University, an M.S. in chemical engineering from University of Wyoming, an M.S. in petroleum engineering, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from University of Southern California. He is a professional civil, mechanical, and chemical engineer registered in California.
