This joint fellowship with the National Water Research Institute advances AMTA’s mission to promote and advance the understanding and application of membrane technology to create safe, affordable, and reliable water treatment solutions. Read more about the fellowship…
Aron Griffin, Colorado School of Mines
Aron Griffin is a fourth year PhD candidate in Environmental Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines advised by Drs Timothy Strathmann and Christopher Bellona. His research, “A Comprehensive Evaluation of the Importance of Steric and Donnan Exclusion Mechanisms for the Rejection of Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances by High Pressure Membranes” advances innovative technologies for the treatment and destruction of PFAS and other constituents using membranes and hydrothermal processes, with a particular interest in mechanisms governing rejection of organic micropollutants. Aron had previously worked as an engineering consultant in municipal water and wastewater.
Kieran Fung, University of Colorado Boulder
Kieran is a doctoral candidate in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder. He is advised by Dr. Yifu Ding and Dr. Xiaoyun Ding. His research titled, “Acoustic Streaming Pneumatic Bubble Structures for Real-Time Membrane Cleaning in a Crossflow Filtration Water Purification System” aims to develop a novel membrane cleaning mechanism with in-situ and on-demand antifouling capabilities.
