Mahdi Malmali is an assistant professor of Chemical Engineering at Texas Tech University. He received his M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (2010) and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Arkansas (2014). After a short postdoctoral appointment at MAST Center at the University of Arkansas, Dr. Malmali joined the Chemical Engineering and Materials Science department at the University of Minnesota as a research associate, under Ed Cussler and Alon McCormick (2015-2017). He then joined Texas Tech University in 2018 as an assistant professor. His research focuses on developing innovative reaction and separations that can address the challenges existing at the intersection of water-energy nexus, with the goal to decarbonize the chemical industry. He is particularly interested in designing advanced membranes, functional materials, and intensified reactions that can promote democratizing and decentralizing sustainable energy and clean water.
