Dr. Stephen M.C. Ritchie

Chemical and Biological Engineering

Dr. Ritchie's research deals primarily with selective separations through the use of membranes and thin films. By modifying the surface chemistry of membranes and other materials, specific functionality may be imparted on the material. Selectivity may also be added by incorporation of a second material, such as nano- particles. Current areas of interest include environmental… Read more about Dr. Stephen M.C. Ritchie
