Dr. Jonathan Brant, Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, Appointed as the Fetzner Faculty Fellow
December 11, 2013 — Assistant Professor Jonathan Brant from the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering has been appointed as the Fetzner Faculty Fellow.
Dr. Brant has focused his research on the development and implementation of new technologies and techniques to treat a range of source waters for beneficial uses. Beginning with his Bachelors in Civil Engineering from Virginia Military Institute and his Masters and Doctorate degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Nevada Brant has focused his research around desalination, water reuse, drinking water, and oil and gas produced water management.
Before arriving at the University of Wyoming, Dr. Brant went to study 2-years at Rice University and 1-year at Duke University under Dr. Mark Wiesner. He later joined HDR Engineering, Inc. in Belleuve, WA as a consulting engineer in the water treatment group for 2-years before arriving at the University of Wyoming in the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering in 2008.
The Fetzner Family Trust has funded this newly developed fellowship and the University of Wyoming is eager in continuing to capitalize on Dr. Brant’s focus of the optimization of membrane processes with regards to issues such as energy consumption, mitigation of membrane fouling, and concentrate or reject disposal.
