Shuai Tan Wins 3rd Place in North American Membrane Society Poster Contest
North American Membrane Society (NAMS) is the only professional society in North America that promotes all aspects of membrane science and technology ranging from fundamental studies of membrane material science to process application and development. As a NAMS tradition, each year student participants of all levels enter a very competitive contest for their posters. At this year’s NAMS, Shuai Tan, a first year Ph.D. candidate in the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department, won third place for his poster, titled ‘Catalytic Micro-Membrane Reactor (MMR) Development for Hydrogen Purification’.
Shuai Tan came to the University of Wyoming from a 4+1 program that the College of Engineering and Applied Science has with the Shanghai Normal University in China. He joined Katie (Dongmei) Li’s group in the fall of 2012 as a Ph.D. candidate. Since this time he has continually impressed his advisor with his critical thinking and independent problem solving skills, both of which are crucial for a successful graduate school experience. Dr. Li describes Shuai Tan as, “… a very easy-going, respectful and pleasant team player. We are very fortunate to have him in the group.”
