Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow, Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment

Princeton University


I am a Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University, co-advised by Prof. Rodney Priestley and Prof. Zhiyong Jason Ren. My research focuses on water treatment, resource recovery, separation processes, and material design.

I received my doctorate in environmental engineering in 2021 from the University of Southern California, where I studied membrane separation for wastewater reclamation and desalination, advised by Prof. Amy Childress. My dissertation focused on the role of material properties in performance for membrane distillation.
