About Accordion Closed
Dr. Jennifer Wade has worked in the areas of carbon capture, gas separation membranes, fuel cells and solid-state catalysis within the refining and automotive industry. One of her early patents is tied to the separation of carbon dioxide at high temperatures, enabled by ionic transport through composite ceramic materials. She continues to collaborate in the area of carbon capture with the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions at Arizona State University, only now focusing on the separation of carbon dioxide from air, air capture. Dr. Wade teaches a series of thermal fluid topics as well as engineering design at all levels of the undergraduate program. Further, she serves as a faculty advisor to NAU’s student-run Green Fund, which is responsible for vetting and supporting a diversity of sustainability projects across NAU.
