People in the Membrane Center


Prof. Andrew Zydney: Artificial organs, bioseparations, and membrane processes, with the goal of developing a more fundamental understanding of the factors governing the behavior of these processes, including the complex interactions between the biological molecules/cells and the synthetic materials used in these devices. Email: [Zydney Google scholar]


Prof. Michael Hickner: All aspects of polymeric materials, polymer micro- and nano-structure, transport characterization, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and new materials for energy applications. Email: [Hickner Google scholar]

Prof. Bruce Logan: Research areas include bioenergy production using microbial electrochemical technologies such as microbial fuel cells (MFCs);  wastewater treatment using membrane bioreactors; salinity gradient energy (SGE); desalination, biofouling control; and bioremediation. Email: [Logan-CV] [Logan Google scholar]

Prof. Chris Gorski: Environmental chemistry, with emphasis on mineral formation and transformation reactions that affect environmental pollutant fate, and applications in energy production, storage, and recovery. [Gorski Google scholar]

Prof. Xueyi Zhang: Gas separation with membranes and thin films; zeolites, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), and other porous materials for gas separation and energy conversion; electron microscopy and structural characterization of zeolites and MOFs. [Zhang homepage] [Zhang Google scholar]

Prof. Mauricio Terrones: 2D materials such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides for the farbrication of smart membranes for desalination, anti-fouling and anti-scaling. [Terrones group webpage] Recent paper in Nature Nano
