Plasma Science and Engineering for Advancing Human Health and Sustainability

Peter Bruggeman’s research is focused on plasma science and engineering, the investigation of ionized gases, and plasma-based technologies that enable advances in health care and sustainability. His research group is particularly known for state-of-the-art diagnostic approaches and collaborative multidisciplinary studies that uncovered the mechanisms of the interactions of plasmas with solids, liquids and living matter. His research has enabled fundamental and technological advances in four areas: decontamination, water treatment, green chemical conversion, and manufacturing.
