Amanda is a first year in Prof. Menachem Elimelech’s lab in the Chemical and Environmental Engineering department at Yale University. She received a B.S.H. in Chemical Engineering and a Minor in Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. While at Stanford, Amanda spent three years in Prof. William Mitch’s lab in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department. Her undergraduate thesis focused on understanding membrane fouling when wastewater is subjected to pretreatments, for applications in wastewater recycling.

Now at Yale, Amanda looks forward to expanding her understanding of membrane processes and their applications. She hopes to apply this work to improve water quality and availability in very arid regions. Her current special investigation involves understanding modified membrane performance when subjected to both scalants and foulants.

Outside of the lab, Amanda enjoys rock climbing, backpacking, and drinking lots of coffee.
