Shu Wang is a visiting Ph.D. student in the research group of Professor Menachem Elimelech in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at Yale. Her research focuses on RO membrane organic and inorganic fouling control.
Shu received her B.S. degree from Tsinghua University, China in 2014. During her research at Tsinghua University, she focused on UF membrane fouling control treated with synthetic water. The membranes were modified to have a conductive carbon layer and thus presented high conductive property. An electric field was then applied to the modified UF membrane to reduce the fouling potential.
In her Ph.D. dissertation, Shu aims to investigate RO membrane fouling mechanisms of organic and inorganic fouling during the treatment of industrial wastewater. So far, she has employed coal industrial secondary effluent for RO filtration to investigate the dominant foulants. During her study at Yale, Shu plans to continue her work on RO membrane fouling control.
Outside of the lab, Shu spends time with her husband and her son. She also enjoys working out and cooking.
