Advanced Water Technology Center
Nathan graduated in December 2008 with M.S. degree in Environmental Engineering. He holds B.S. in Environmental Engineering from Western Washington University. His research focused on membrane evaporation (membrane distillation) and nanofiltration processes for treatment of blowdown water from cooling towers in both geothermal and coal-powerd power plants. Nathan also investigated treatment and degasification of blowdown from cooling towers and desalination of geothermal brines. This research was funded by the Department of Energy/National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). His faculty advisor was Professor Cath.
