The Public Health & Environmental Engineering (PH2E) Lab research and expertise are at the crossroads of environmental and public health engineering. We are based out of the University of Victoria (Canada) in the Green Civil Engineering Department and under the leadership of Prof. Caetano Dorea. Previously, our group was based out of the Université Laval (2011-2017) and the University of Glasgow (2007-2010).

Our expertise includes the development and evaluation of water and sanitation/wastewater technologies, field- and operator-appropriate water/wastewater/ faecal sludge quality analytical methods, and functional ecology characterisation of biological treatment systems for safeguarding the health of the public and the environment. Our research activities are focused both low-resource contexts in low- and high-income countries with projects ranging from the development of methods for the online monitoring and control of disinfection by products in Canadian municipalities to the delivery of safe water and sanitation for humanitarian relief.

You can find an up to date list of our published work on Google Scholar (we’re working on making publications that aren’t open access available through on line repositories – in the meantime please send an email).
