Prof. Satinder Kaur Brar is the James and Joanne Love Chair in Environmental Engineering at York University. Her research is on the intersecting areas of environmental engineering and its impact on the overall well-being of the global community. She primarily works in the two converging fields of value-addition of wastes and removal of emerging contaminants. Many national and international awards and honours have been bestowed on her that prove her research mettle, notable ones being, in 2021, Best Paper Award, and in 2019, Eddy Principles/Processes Wastewater Medal winner, honoured by the Water Environment Federation. In 2017, her research on “Novel and Advanced Hybrid Oxidation and Enzymatic Technologies for Emerging Trace Environmental Contaminants” was awarded the Grand Prize in University Research for Excellence in Environmental Engineering and Science by the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES). She was recently inducted into the European Academy of Sciences in 2021, and she has been a member of the College of New Scholars, Scientist and Artists of the Royal Society of Canada since 2014. She leads the Bioprocessing and NanoEnzyme Formulation Facility (BANEFF) at York University, and this unit has successfully led to the training of 72 HQP (including 45 undergraduates and summer interns). Currently, she is supervising 4 postdoctoral fellows, 2 research associates, 1 research assistant, 11 PhDs, and 2 MScs. She has published more than 400 articles, edited 12 books, and has at least 55 invited talks to her credit.
