Areas of Interest

Chemical separations are essential to the production of freshwater and the generation of fuels. Membrane separations are gaining attention as an alternative to traditional energy-intensive processes because of their ability to avoid the thermodynamic limitations associated with heat use.

Realizing the benefits of membranes relies on understanding and controlling the transport of chemical species across them. Our group examines how membrane structure and chemistry affect the transport of solutes and solvents across a variety of membranes. We design and fabricate next-generation membranes that provide more precise control over the transport of chemical species.
