Research interest

Dra. María Jesús Abeledo-Lameiro scientific career is focused on the application of advanced oxidation processes (photochemical and not photochemical) for water disinfection (drinking water and wastewater), for subsequent application. Drinking water disinfection focused on the evaluation of different solar reactors against the protozoan parasite Cryptosporidium parvum, which was implemented in developing countries.
