Edo is a postdoc fellow in Prof. Menachem Elimelech group, Department of Chemical Engineering, Yale University.

The critical importance of membrane desalination to the water sector makes biofouling as one of the biggest setbacks in current RO membrane technology. Edo intends to develop in his postdoc research new antifouling/cleaning techniques for membranes, which couple biofilm dispersion with engineering approaches.

In his spare time Edo enjoys different hobbies ranging from art, carpentry and water sports such as sailing or wind surfing.

In 2003 the United Nations has stated; “In the future fresh, drinkable water is predicted to be the main cause for most of the conflicts”. Edo strongly believes that water mustn't lead to bitter conflicts but rather bridge toward peace through joint ventures such as desalination.
