Professor Reddy developed a novel research program at UW by integrating diverse disciplines such as environmental chemistry, natural resources, water resources, engineering, and economics. Dr. Reddy is a well-known scientist for his original contributions to the following research topics: 1) mineralization of anthropogenic carbon dioxide, 2) filtration of toxic arsenic species from water, 3) geochemistry and water quality of coalbed natural gas (CBNG) produced water, 4) removal of nitrate from groundwater, and 5) speciation of toxic selenium species in water.
Dr. Reddy's interdisciplinary research approaches have attracted over $32 million in funding (as PI and Co-PI) from a variety of state, federal, and industrial sources. Dr. Reddy authored (or co-authored) over 310 technical publications (26 invited) and 300 professional presentations (103 invited). Dr. Reddy given over 34 presentations at international conferences, workshops, and symposia held in 15 different countries. Professor Reddy's research is highly regarded across international, national, regional, state, and local audiences. His research on point and non-point source air and water pollution has benefitted national and international audiences, regional and local agriculture producers, urban and rural landowners, the energy industry, and state/regional/national air quality and water quality management and regulatory agencies. His current research projects include:
