WEC Research Relevance

Prior to Prof. Amy’s recent appointment at Clemson, he served as Director of the Water Desalination and Reuse Center (WDRC) at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). His recent research at KAUST focused on: (i) low-energy desalination processes including forward osmosis (FO), membrane distillation (MD), adsorption desalination (AD), and various hybrids; and (ii) aquifer recharge and recovery (ARR) as a low-cost/-energy wastewater treatment/reuse process.
