Welcome to Hu Group! Advanced membranes & membrane processes for seawater utilization, as one of the most effective and efficient technologies, have been widely used in many fields including seawater desalination, wastewater treatment, salinity-gradient power generation, and product concentration or separation. Our research group focuses on the development of advanced membranes and membrane processes for both fundamental and application-orientated study. Our research involves the synthesis of novel membrane materials and nanomaterials for robust membranes, the fabrication of advanced membranes for precise separation under critical environmental conditions, and the integration of advanced membrane system for novel applications. Our research is multidisciplinary ranging from materials sciences and polymer engineering, chemical engineering, to environmental science and engineering.
