Weiyi Pan's picture
Ph.D., Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis, 2022
M.Sc., Environmental Engineering, Peking University, China, 2017
B.E., Environmental Engineering, China University of Mining and Technology (Beijing), China, 2014
Weiyi joined Dr. Menachem Elimelech’s group in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at Yale University as a postdoctoral associate in August 2022. Here he will broaden his research scope to selectively remove contaminants using a novel electrosorption process and membrane technology.
Before this, Weiyi earned his Ph.D. degree in Energy, Environmental, and Chemical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2022. He is an environmental engineer by training with a background in engineering and aquatic chemistry. During his Ph.D., he worked on diverse aspects of environmental science and engineering related to lead in drinking water under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Giammar.
Outside of research, Weiyi enjoys workout, playing basketball, and exploring nature. He is a coffee and tea lover.
