Dr. Camacho is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Engineering at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. She has about 10 years of laboratory research expertise in the areas of desalination, concentrate management, water remediation, development of innovative technologies for water treatment and purification applications, and the water-energy nexus. The following are some of the topics Dr. Camacho has been conducting research on:
- Membrane distillation (MD) technology for desalination and treatment of salinity water.
- Electrodialysis metathesis for zero discharge desalination (ZDD) and recovery of mineral salts with marketable value.
- Adsorption of heavy metals, including uranium and arsenic, from contaminated water using natural and novel adsorbent materials.
- Production of graphene oxide-based adsorbents and membranes for water treatment and purification applications.
- Sustainable water reuse and recovery of wastewater subproducts.
- Solidification/stabilization of hazardous wastes.
Dr. Camacho has published several research articles in scientific journals. She has been recognized by Who’s Who in Science and Engineering and by the United States Achievement Academy. She is an active member of the International Desalination Association, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, American Chemical Society, American Membrane Technology Association, American Water Works Association, Association of Environmental Engineers and Science Professors, and Society for the Advancement of Hispanics/Chicanos and Native-American in Science.
