Pierre Le-Clech is a Chemical Engineer with a PhD from the University of Cranfield, UK. He has been working on membrane processes since 1999, when he started his research on fouling in membrane bioreactors (MBRs). In 2003, Pierre joined the UNESCO Centre for Membrane Science and Technology at the University of New South Wales where he now works as an Associate Professor in the School of Chemical Sciences. He has researched many aspects of the water and wastewater treatments by membrane processes. He seeks to further develop the use of membrane technologies, through the development of new operating conditions, the optimisation of the energy need for filtration and the advanced understanding of rejection and fouling mechanisms. Pierre is one of the Associate Editors for Desalination and Water Treatment and on the Editorial Board of Membrane Water Treatment and Process Safety and Environmental Protection.


My Expertise
