“Direct numerical simulations of fluid mixing and mass transport in membrane filtration systems. Project focused on simulating fluid mixing and solute transport in reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) devices. RO and NF play a central role in the global waterenergy- climate nexus. They also have complicated hydrodynamic instabilities, geometries, and mass transport phenomena that go to the core of theoretical and computational fluid mechanics.”
