Andrew Haddad is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the group of Robert Kostecki. His research interests are water-energy nexus, and energy efficient desalination and valuable ion mining from water.At Berkeley Lab Andrew is focused on treating high salinity waters by using solar energy and responsive separation agents, with the goal of achieving zero liquid discharge and closing the water loop. Previously Andrew was an ITRI Rosenfeld Postdoctoral Fellow in the Gadgil group where he focused on developing high porosity materials for energy efficient and highly effective fluoride removal from water. Andrew obtained his PhD in inorganic chemistry from the University of Louisville in 2017 where he focused on developing new materials for and studying the mechanisms of hydrogen oxidation/production and carbon dioxide reduction. Andrew is the recipient of the Robert Pack Memorial Award and the John Richard Binford Award given for the graduating years top dissertation.
