Muxue Zhang Awarded Third Place at ACS 2017 Student Research Symposium

Muxue Zhang, a graduate student in environmental engineering, was awarded third place at the 2017 Upper Peninsula American Chemical Society Student Research Symposium held in Marquette at Northern Michigan University on March 25, 2017.

Zhang, a second-year master’s student, presented on her thesis work about predicting the reverse osmosis (RO) rejection of toxicologically relevant organics for direct potable reuse application in wastewater reclamation processes.

She works with Daisuke Minakata (CEE). Her work is part of a funded water reuse project looking at the intrinsic interactions between a wide variety of organics and RO membrane using computational chemistry tools.
