Aarthi Mohan is a Senior Engineer (Category II) at Trussell’s San Diego office. Her interests lie in the nexus of drinking water, water reuse and analytical instrumentation. Previously, she worked with the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s (SNWA) Water Quality Research & Development Division contributing at various capacities (lead/assist) to projects sponsored by the Water Research Foundation (#5035, 5031, 5053, 5210, 5205) or the Bureau of Reclamation’s Desalination and Water Purification Research Program. Most of these were reuse projects and entailed pilot operations [(ozone (O3)/ biological activated carbon (BAC)], nanofiltration (NF), reverse osmosis (RO)], analytical method development [charged aerosol detection (CAD)], disinfection by-products (DBPs) [bromate, haloacetonitriles (HANs)] and other concerning contaminants such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Prior to SNWA, she was a graduate research assistant at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) working on drinking water projects that broadly included regulated and unregulated DBPs, freshwater oil spills, O3 and ultraviolet (UV)-based advanced oxidation processes and taste and odor issues. At UMass, her projects were mostly sponsored by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority and partly by the Philadelphia Water Department. Aarthi has a Bachelors in Civil Engineering from Anna University, India and a Masters and PhD in Civil/Environmental Engineering from UMass.
