Advanced Water Technology Center
Ph.D. Candidate. B.S. in Environmental Sciences from the University of Vermont, M.S.in Mechanical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines.I am studying crystallization during membrane distillation processes to better understand the mechanisms and limitations of mass and heat transfer in the hybrid membrane distillation crystallization process. The overall goal of this research is to develop better desalination techniques that have higher recovery from hypersaline resources and may be simultaneously used to harvest valuable minerals from the water. My research is funded by the National Science Foundation.
