About This Project
We aim to use 3D printing to fabricate new polymer membranes for high-throughput water treatment applications. Our preliminary data indicates that roughening membrane surfaces increases their water treatment rates. We are seeking funds to purchase a new 3D printer in our lab that will allow for students to explore new surface patterns to develop next-generation membranes for water purification
