Professor Menachem Elimelech
Yale University, USA
Professor Menachem Elimelech’s research interests are the area of membrane-based processes for desalination and water purification. He has received numerous awards in recognition of his research and teaching. Notable among these are the Eni Prize for ‘Protection of the Environment’ in 2015, election to the United States National Academy of Engineering in 2006, and the Clarke Prize for excellence in water research in 2005. Professor Elimelech is a Thompson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher in 2 categories: Chemistry and Environment/Ecology.
Professor Chung-Hak Lee
Seoul National University, South Korea
Professor Chung-Hak Lee was the chairman at Membrane Technology Specialist Group from 2010 to 2013 and is now a Senior Fellow of the International Water Association. He has devoted himself to the development of membrane-based innovative water/wastewater technologies. Professor Lee has opened up a new horizon to the analysis and control of membrane fouling. He champions the field the Quorum Quenching that links molecular biology and engineering sciences to control fouling during membrane bioreactor operation.
