Dr. Kianmehr's expertise is in environmental engineering and sustainable built environment, with emphasis on sustainability of water infrastructure and treatment technologies. His research work involves characterization and treatment of water and wastewater, bioenergy generation from municipal wastewater, sustainable development of water infrastructure and green buildings. Between 1999 and 2004, he directed various design, planning, and QC studies in the field of hydraulic engineering, and worked on major water transmission and supply projects, as well as earth dam construction and flood control projects. Prior to joining AUD, he worked with Environment Canada on the design, operation, and evaluation of components of wastewater treatment plants. Dr. Kianmehr is a member of the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the Water Environment Association of Ontario (WEAO).
