Most of Dr. Tewari's teaching and research efforts are focused on environmental engineering and foundational civil engineering areas. Specifically, his focus is on drinking water quality and challenges related to wastewater treatment. His recent efforts have been focused on a variety of separation processes such as physical, chemical, biological, and electrochemical.

However, currently, he is more focused on capacitive deionization, electrokinetic and electrocoagulation for improving water quality and better treatment of wastewater from industrial as well as municipal sources. In addition, his efforts are focused on sustainability and resiliency of various systems around us. His recently funded projects have been in the area of pollution prevention and sustainability, application of Geographic Information System to environmental management, and resiliency of infrastructure. In addition, Dr. Tewari has a strong interest in engineering education-related activities. He enjoys teaching various core classes and mentoring students and engineering societies of students.
