Werber, Jay

""Jay Werber, Assistant Professor, B.Sc. (Washington Univ. St. Louis), M.Sc., Ph.D. (Yale), Post-doc (Minnesota)

My research group will focus on membrane materials and membrane separation processes with the aim of attaining breakthrough performance in molecular separations. We are especially motivated by challenges involving the sustainable management of water and natural resources such as metals. Our work will cover all aspects of separation science, including the synthesis and characterization of high-performance membranes, fundamental transport in polymers, and process design.

Gu, Frank

Frank Gu Professor, Ph.D. (Queen’s), Postdoc (MIT-Harvard)
NSERC Senior Industrial Research Chair in Nanotechnology Engineering

Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter generally in the 1–100 nm dimension range. Detailed understanding of chemical interactions and recent technological advances have created the possibility of designing nano-structured materials tailored for specific applications. Professor Gu heads an interdisciplinary research group that combines functional polymers and metal oxide materials to solve problems in health, environmental protection, and industrial applications.
