Research Area: Alex’s current work focuses on elucidating the mechanisms responsible for fouling resistance of chemically heterogeneous surfaces with nanoscale structures and developing thermoreflectance methods for studying non-ideal heat transfer in membrane distillation.Research Area: Daniel’s research focuses on wastewater treatment at coal-fired power plants. He uses mass-balance approaches in order to model the composition and speciation and process models to asses potential compliance technologies for power plants.Research Area: Xitong Liu’s research focuses on understanding the mechanisms for the fouling of electrochemical desalination systems. In addition, he is exploring novel technologies to regenerate fouled electrodes.
