Santiago is a postdoc in Professor Elimelech's lab. His research interests include:

  1. the interaction of macromolecules and bacteria with surfaces of environmental relevance;
  2. development of fouling-resistant membranes for water separations, and simulation-based approaches to rational membrane design;
  3. membrane-based power generation from salinity differences.

Santiago studied chemical engineering at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and McGill University. He received graduate degrees from Imperial College and the University of Western Ontario, and a Ph.D. from Princeton University with a dissertation entitled "Computational studies of confined, interfacial and hydration water". In his spare time, Santiago enjoys playing futbol, reading and writing. He was born and raised in Mexico City, Mexico.
