Talk: Forward osmosis technology for desalination of salty waste streams
Dr. Judy Lee received her double degree in B.Eng. (Chemical Engineering) and B.Sc (Physics) in 2002 and her PhD in 2006, both from The University of Melbourne, Australia. In 2007 She was awarded the JSPS Fellowship to spend two years in Japan at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).
She then returned to the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Melbourne in 2010 as a postdoc for further two years before being awarded the DECRA (Discovery Early Career Researcher Award) by the Australian Research Council in 2012. In 2015 she took up an academic post at the University of Surrey as a Senior Lecturer and is currently an Associate Professor and Director of Learning and Teaching for the department. Her research group at Surrey is interested in both fundamental work and applied aspects of ultrasound processing and membrane filtration systems, with a particular interest in treatment of emerging pollutants such pharmaceuticals and nano/microplastics in wastewaters.
