CEE/EPP Assistant professor Meagan S. Mauter was recently named one of the three recipients of the 2015 North American Membrane Society (NAMS) Young Membrane Scientist Award. The award, which will be presented this summer at the NAMS annual meeting in Boston, MA, is given to individuals within the first two years of their first academic appointment in recognition of their achievements to date as well as their outstanding potential in membrane science and technology.

At CMU, Professor Mauter runs the Water and Energy Efficiency for the Environment (WE3 Lab). Her present research seeks novel approaches to sustainably meet water supply in an energy constrained world by re-thinking the policies surrounding water treatment, re-defining the inputs to the treatment process, and re-envisioning the membranes in membrane-based water treatment processes.

Mauter holds bachelors degrees in Civil & Environmental Engineering and History from Rice University, a Masters of Environmental Engineering from Rice University, and a PhD in Chemical and 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.
