  • Education Background

Ph.D. chemical engineering. University of California at Santa Barbara, 2005
B.S., chemical engineering; minor, business administration. University of California at Berkeley, 2001

  • Research Topic

Crystallization process engineering
We study several aspects of crystallization process engineering, including batch crystallization, reactive crystallization, membrane-assisted crystallization and eutectic-freeze crystallization.

Sustainable process development
We study the development of sustainable chemical processes, including processes that reduce consumption of energy and raw materials and processes that utilize renewable feedstocks.
