Jaime Plazas-Tuttle

My general interests are to obtain experience as a researcher working with nanomaterials for drinking and wastewater treatment, applied science & engineering, water quality, fundamental physical, chemical and biological processes in environmental systems, membrane technology, engineers without borders, and new and alternative technologies for sustainable development. I enjoy discovering, learning and adapting new teaching strategies and developing new tools for my teaching career. Previously, I helped to establish an "Engineers Without Borders (EWB)" group in Colombia, providing drinking water to rural communities. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Saleh since August 2012.


Currently I am working on following projects:

» Transport of chirally separated carbon nanotubes
