Leveraging High Resolution Information to Design Sustainable Food, Energy and Water Systems

17. Januar 2018, 11:00 Uhr - 12:00 Uhr

Eawag Dübendorf

Place: Forum Chriesbach, FC-C20

Professor Meagan Mauter holds Bachelor’s degrees in Civil & Environmental Engineering and History from Rice University, a Master’s of Environmental Engineering from Rice University, and a Ph.D. in Chemical & Environmental Engineering from Yale University. She completed post-doctoral training in the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and the Mossavar Rahmani Center for Business and Government at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, where she was an Energy Technology Innovation Policy Fellow.

At Carnegie Mellon University, Professor Mauter runs the Water and Energy Efficiency for the Environment (WE3 Lab) and is jointly appointed in the departments of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Engineering & Public Policy. She also holds courtesy appointments in Chemical Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering. Her present research seeks novel approaches to sustainably meet water and energy supply in a carbon constrained world by re-thinking the policies surrounding water treatment, re-defining the inputs
to the treatment process, and re-envisioning the materials in membrane-based water treatment processes. Her work has been recognized through an NSF CAREER Award, the James J. Morgan Early Career Award, and the NAMS Young Membrane Scientist Award, among others.

This seminar is open to the public and can be visited for free without registration.
