Elizabeth is advised by Bryan McCloskey at UCB and is working with the Urban Group on photo-electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide.
Elizabeth received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. As a Research Associate at Air Liquide she studied CO2 capture from coal-fired power plants using polymeric hollow fiber membranes. In her free time Elizabeth enjoys singing, dancing, and hiking.
Ph.D. Student, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UC Berkeley
Lukas joined the group for his Master's thesis in 2015 and is being co-advised by Prof. Ashok Gadgil. His research focuses on effective brackish and seawater purification through methods such as FO and CDI. In addition to understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms, he is interested in bringing these technologies to market in developed and developing countries.
