Mauter Awarded Dean's Early Career Fellowship

Mauter Awarded Dean's Early Career Fellowship

Assistant Professor Meagan Mauter, jointly appointed in both Civil and Environmental Engineering and Engineering and Public Policy, was recently awarded a Dean's Early Career Fellowship from the College of Engineering. The award was established in Spring 2013 to recognize deserving untenured faculty members.

Mauter’s research looks at enabling energy efficient water treatment technologies by addressing the technical and structural barriers to their implementation.  Recent work has focused on the development of membranes with improved mass transfer and fouling resistance, desalination technologies that leverage low temperature heat as an energy input, and processes for treating alternative feed streams, including high salinity oil and gas produced water and low salinity brackish water.

Mauter has been recognized with several awards for her work including a 2016 NSF Career Award, Morgan ES&T Early Career Award, and the College of Engineering’s George Tallmann Ladd Research Award.
