Yousuf Bootwala, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia
Bootwala is a second-year Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering whose research, Evaluating and Tuning the Ion Transport and Selectivity through 2D Titanium Carbide Membranes, is being conducted under the guidance of Dr. Marta Hatzell. Bootwala earned an MS in Environmental Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh and a BS in Chemical Engineering from the Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, India.
Stephanie Ribet, Northwestern University, Illinois
Ribet is a third year Ph.D. student studying Multifunctional Nanocomposite (MNS) Membranes for Nutrient Recovery under the guidance of Professor Vinayak Dravid. Ribet earned an A.B. in Chemistry with High Honors from Princeton University. Her research focuses on developing membrane technology that harnesses the unique properties of multifunctional nanostructures: a scalable, eco-friendly class of materials that can be tailored for targeted recovery of contaminants from water.
