Welcome to My Personal Website


My name is Hamidreza Sharifan. I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Texas A & M University. My academic expertise has been polished by two renowned universities, a master degree in Environment and Proces Engineering from the University of Stuttgart in Germany and a master degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Texas Tech University. 


My current research is centered on bioremediation and rehabilitation of contaminated sites and farmlands and their associated impacts towards food safety and sustainability. Our team investigates:

  • Interaction of the Engineered Nanoparticle with crops, leafy vegetables, and soil composition.
  • Environmental fate of heavy metals and metalloids in soil, water, and plants.
  • Adsorption of heavy metals and organic substances in aqueous and nonaqueous phases on the surface of nanoparticles.
