Environmental Science: Advances welcomes a new Associate Editor: Dr. Ngai Yin Yip!

We are delighted to announce that Ngai Yin Yip has joined the Environmental Science: Advances Editorial Board as an Associate Editor. He received his doctoral degree in Chemical and Environmental Engineering from Yale University and currently serves as the Lavon Duddleson Krumb Assistant Professor of Earth and Environmental Engineering at Columbia University.

Dr. Yip’s current research is at the forefront of advancing physicochemical technologies and innovations to address critical separation challenges in water, energy, and the environment, including:

  • High-salinity desalination
  • Zero-liquid discharge
  • Resource recovery from wastewaters
  • Next-generation selective membranes
  • Switchable solvents for water treatment
  • Low-grade heat utilization

His outstanding contributions to these areas have earned him numerous recognitions, including the James J. Morgan Early Career Award (Honorable Mention) from Environmental Science & Technology. He has also been featured as an Emerging Investigator in Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology and as a Young Talent in Frontiers of Environmental Science & Engineering.
