Abstract: The global demand for energy and water is projected to increase by 40% and 55%, respectively, by 2050. Meeting these targets in an efficient, sustainable, and affordable manner necessitates significant scientific and technological advances. This talk will discuss how phase transitions and smart materials as dynamic building blocks can enable low energy separations (clean water) and heat decarbonization across different temperatures (clean energy) towards achieving the ambitious Energy Earthshots.

Bio: Dr. Akanksha Menon is an Assistant Professor in the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech, where she directs the Water-Energy Research Lab. Her research focuses on applying thermal science and functional materials to develop sustainable and decarbonized technologies for the water-energy nexus.
