Bartholomew Awarded Smith Fellowship
CEE PhD student Tim Bartholomew was recently awarded a Bradford and Diane Smith Graduate Fellowship to support his graduate studies and research. He is advised by Professor Meghan Mauter and joined the department in 2015 after completing a BS in Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis.
Bartholomew's research addresses water management challenges in the energy sector, specifically focusing on managing high salinity brines for shale gas production and carbon capture and sequestration. In his research, he is developing process-based and supply chain optimization models with the goal of increasing treatment technology performance and water management efficiency.
“I feel privileged to receive this fellowship,” Bartholomew says about this fellowhip. “I am grateful for the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and their incredible commitment to supporting graduate students.”
The Bradford and Diane Smith fellowship was created through the generosity of Bradford Smith, a 1969 graduate of the College of Engineering, and his wife Diane, a 1971 graduate of the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences to help support the graduate studies of highly deserving students in the College of Engineering (CMU).
