Abstract:
Polymeric materials, due to their adaptability and array of functionality, touch almost every aspect of our daily
lives. This seminar will focus on two areas in which new behavior was engineered into “old” materials. In the
first part, I will discuss my lab’s efforts to design new polymers for water treatment membranes.
Membrane-based water purification techniques are the current state of the art, but face limitations including
thermodynamically limited transport, high material and operation costs, the perm-selectivity tradeoff, and

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering will host a special seminar on Thursday, 6/13: Dr. Thomas Beck from the University of Cincinnati will be presenting a talk on Sustainable Energy and Society.

Join us for Space and Time in the Brain, the inaugural Tulane Brain Institute Distinguished Lecture featuring Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist, Edvard Moser. Dr. Moser is the 2014 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his role in the discovery of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain.
