Visiting Student Programs at the AMPM Center

The Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials (AMPM) Center is home to outstanding faculty, scientists and graduate students mandated with the vision to alleviate the energy penalty and prohibitive cost associated with the separation, purification and conversion of petroleum and other industrial commodities amounting to nearly 40% produced energy across the world. To do so, we train students and early-career researchers to design and deploy disruptive membrane- and/or sorbent-based technologies that mitigate this energy penalty, to exploit petroleum resources for other high-value uses, and to produce greener and cleaner chemical and fuel stocks and chemical processes
