Prior to joining UC Riverside, Dr. Jassby was the executive director of the Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology, an NSF-funded research center located at Duke. His Ph.D. work concentrated on the impact of aggregation on nanoparticle reactive properties. Prior to this, he worked as an engineer at BBL, an environmental engineering consulting firm in Raleigh, NC, where he worked on soil remediation projects throughout the southeast. Dr. Jassby obtained his M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UC Davis, and a B.Sc. in Biology from Hebrew University in Israel.

His research interests include membrane technology, water and wastewater treatment, environmental implications and applications of nanotechnology. To meet the water demand of a growing population and treat the increasingly complex waste generated by human activity, new technologies need to be developed and incorporated into existing infrastructure.
