Welcome to the Wright Lab

The Wright Lab utilizes modeling and experimental approaches in tackling active research areas surrounding water treatment, with a focus on implementation of technologies in low- and middle-income communities. Current work includes solar-powered desalination processes, in-situ synthesis of peritoneal dialysis fluid, and gas extraction for organic wastewater treatment.
