A critical review on nanobubble technology
Ultrafine Bubble Conference!
On December 21, 2022, our ultrafine bubble group presented at the 18th International Symposium of Fine Bubble Technology! Dr. Khanal presented about ultrafine bubble technology in aquaponics, Ty presented about the use of ultrafine bubbles in production of microbial biomass, and Lisa presented about generation and physicochemical characteristics of ultrafine bubbles.
This year, two new graduate students, Muzammil Khan and Shreeja Lopchan Lama, have joined our group.
Furthermore, congratulations to Kyle Marcelino on a successful defense of his thesis. He is now pursuing his PhD from our group.

On November 13, 2022, Professor Emeritus Marvin R. Paulsen from Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign visited our lab. It was great discussing with Prof. Paulsen on different ongoing research in our lab. Prof. Paulsen was particularly interested in different agricultural and environmental applications of nanobubble technology. Thank you, Prof. Paulsen, for visiting us, and Dr. Leo Obaldo at Hawaii Department of Agriculture, for arranging this visit.
