Professor Hayes' research expertise includes surface and interfacial chemistry, environmental chemistry and engineering, green chemistry and sustainable engineering principles, and nanotechnology for the improvement of water quality. His current research primarily focuses on the evaluation and optimization of solid phase reactive materials in water treatment systems for effective removal of water-based environmental contaminants. On-going projects include optimization of reduced iron oxide and sulfide solid phases and solution conditions for effective removal of radionuclides and metals from water; the synthesis, optimization, and application of nanoparticles for water treatment; advanced oxidation processes using Fenton-based catalysts for removal of pharmaceutical and personal care products from water and wastewater; ion exchange resin and chelation systems for treatment of radionuclide impaired wastewater associated with shale gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing; and an integrated assessment of the sustainability of safe drinking water supply using iron-oxide based filtration systems in Bangladesh.
