Prof Peter Jarvis

Peter is Professor of Water Science and Technology at Cranfield University, where he heads the Cranfield Water Science Institute and the Drinking Water research area. Having obtained his MSc in Water and Wastewater Engineering (2001) and PhD in Water Treatment from Cranfield (2004), he worked at Anglian Water in industrial research and development before returning back to academia. Peter’s current research interests centre on using new and existing technologies for advanced removal of natural organic matter (NOM) and a range of other contaminants from water sources used for drinking. He is actively leading research in these areas on: 1) NOM removal using ion-exchange, novel coagulants and adsorption systems; 2) the interaction between NOM and micropollutants such as the PFAS compounds; 3) Photocatalysis for organic compound removal; 4) Piloting new flowsheets for the next generation of drinking water treatment works.
