Dr. Lively's group focuses on engineering advanced separation devices through a combination of materials science and chemical engineering. In particular, the group's research investigates the use of nanoporous materials such as zeolites, metal-organic frameworks and polymers.
• Energy efficient molecular separation processes
• Design of multi-layer hollow fiber devices: sorbents, membranes, contactors and reactors
• Creation and engineering of high performance polymers and nanoporous materials
