Dr. Korshin obtained a MSc degree with honors (physics, spectroscopy) from Kazan State University and a PhD (physical chemistry, electrochemistry) from Kazan State Technological University (both in Russia). He started work at the University of Washington in Seattle in 1991 as a postdoctoral researcher and has been teaching at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering since 2000. He has held invited and affiliated positions at the University of Paris VII Diderot, Australian Water Quality Centre in Adelaide and Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. Prof. Korshin is a member of the editorial board of Water Research.

His research interests include corrosion and metal release in drinking water, environmental electrochemistry, advanced oxidation processes, development of new approaches to quantify and model the degradation of pharmaceuticals and other trace-level organic contaminants in wastewater, characterization of natural organic matter and its reactions with halogens, on-line methods to monitor drinking water quality and environmental chemistry of radionuclides. He has published almost a hundred refereed publications, many of them in leading journals such as Water Research and Environmental Science & Technology. Prof. Korshin has participated in numerous projects funded by Water Research Foundation, Water ReUse Foundation, National Science Foundation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other organizations.
