Student in the Spotlight

Developing Sustainable Water Technology

Jeb Shingler, a CHEE doctoral student who also earned his master’s degree in environmental engineering at the UA, is developing a hybrid membrane system that produces freshwater from saltwater. His project, Water Resiliency and Self-Sufficiency in the Arid Southwest, is funded by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center.

“I chose the UA because I have the opportunity to conduct research I am passionate about at a place that is truly one of a kind.”
