Professor Livingston is passionate about creating novel technology platforms for manufacturing chemicals and (bio)pharmaceuticals. Many of the concepts the Livingston Group work with are based on membrane separations, which is our core expertise. Often it is the intersection between the way chemists or biologists currently do something, with their own innovations in membrane technology, that leads to the most interesting ideas and projects. His group works on the discovery and fabrication of new membrane materials and designs, and he really enjoy working with his team to apply these new membranes in fresh areas where major separations challenges call. That often means his Post-Docs and PhD students have to learn completely new techniques!
