Title: Water Technologies by Interface Engineering: Purification and Pollution Remediation

Abstract: Driven by climate change, population growth, development, urbanization, and other factors, water crises represent the greatest global risk in the coming decades. All sectors of society rely inherently on reliable supplies of clean water, and current practices are not sustainable. New technologies will be a central piece of the solution to this complex situation, opening up non-traditional water sources to expand supply. In this presentation, Dr. Darling will lay out the challenges and present several examples of work in his group based on materials science strategies for addressing applications in water.

**Refreshments will be served at 2:30 p.m. (BEFORE the seminar) in room ARC 233
