Allyson McGaughey, Ph.D.

Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow, Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment

Princeton University

My research focuses on the development of sustainable solutions to grand environmental challenges in water reuse, resource recovery, and environmental remediation. To achieve these goals, I work to develop and leverage fundamental knowledge of materials and interfacial mechanisms to design innovative separation materials and processes.

Currently, 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. I completed my PhD in Environmental Engineering in 2021 at the University of Southern California, advised by Prof. Amy Childress. My dissertation identified relationships between material properties and performance and defined new performance metrics for membrane processes in water reuse and desalination.
