Review paper on UV inactivation of viruses

A new review paper is now published with 93 references including most recent SARS-CoV2 inactivation data by UV. My new challenge is to have this in a journal of applied physics, not environmental engineering!

New Paper: UV disinfection of platelet concentrates

Working with Japanese Red Cross, I have published the first paper on UV-LED disinfection of human platelet concentrates, which can potentially enhance the safety of blood transfusion. Very challenging and interesting application!

New paper accepted!

A review paper on chronic kidney disease in Sri Lanka has been accepted by the Journal of Water and Health. This issue is sometimes called “a mystery in Sri Lanka”, because the cause of the disease remains unknown for decades in spite of local and international efforts to reveal it. This review paper covers most recent outstanding research to understand this public health issue.
