We are delighted to introduce Peter Vikesland as an Editorial Board Member for our new journal Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology.
Professor Vikesland’s research interests include nanomaterials in the environment and improved sensors for drinking water. His research on the environmental implications of nanotechnology examines the effects of solution chemistry on the aggregation and dissolution of environmentally relevant nanoparticles. Peter is the director of the Virginia Tech Sustainable Nanotechnology Interdisciplinary Graduate Education Program, where the primary goal is to facilitate the incorporation of sustainable design concepts in the nanotechnology field. Peter’s research group is interested in the development and testing of sensor technologies for the detection of environmental contaminants, with a particular emphasis on the use of Raman spectroscopy to detect biological and organic compounds. He is also works to evaluate drinking water disinfectant reactions with aqueous contaminants, focusing on disinfectant reactions with pharmaceutical and personal care products.
