Kidambi receives NSF Early Career Award to support atomically thin membrane research

Posted by on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 in News, .

Piran Kidambi has received a 2020 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development grant.

The five-year, $500,000 grantDeconstructing Proton Transport through Atomically Thin Membranes—begins July 1, 2020.

Kidambi, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, will use the award to support his research on membrane technology. His work focuses on  atomically-thin two-dimensional materials that allow subatomic particles (e.g., protons) to selectively pass through the membrane while blocking even small gas atoms such as helium.

“The ability to separate protons from other atoms and molecules will enable disruptive innovations in energy generation and conversion, chemical processing and separations, electronics  and environmental protection,” Kidambi said.

The project aims to develop fundamental understanding of proton transport through 2D materials. These scientific insights will be leveraged to develop novel catalytic and separation processes, he said. This research is supported by a NSF Faculty Early Career Development grant #1944134.
