Bio

Dr. Yoram Cohen is a Distinguished Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) (since 1981) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and a Faculty member of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. Dr. Cohen is a Distinguished Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and a faculty member at the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. He is Director of the Water Technology Research (WaTeR) and a co-founder of the Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (CEIN) that received the 2012 California Governor’s Award in Green Chemistry. Dr. Cohen is a recognized expert and technology innovator in water treatment and desalination, membrane separation processes and environmental impact assessment. He received the Lawrence K. Cecil Award (2003) and the Clarence (Larry) G. Gerhold Award (2019) from the AIChE Environmental Division and Separation Division, respectively, and was elected AIChE Fellow in 2009. In 2008 he received the Ann C. Rosenfield Community Partnership Prize for his environmental research, a County of Los Angeles Commendation, a State of California Senate Certificate of Recognition, and a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition (US) for his contribution to legislation to protect public health and dedicated service to the community. Dr. Cohen is a recognized expert and technology innovator in water treatment and desalination, membrane separations, environmental impact assessment, toxicity modeling, machine learning and nanoinformatics, with over 260 scholarly publications, five edited books, 470 conference presentations and 185 invited talks. His research contributed to the development and deployment of advanced flexible, self-adaptive and energy optimal water desalination systems, new membranes and monitoring technology for membrane fouling, mineral scaling and membrane integrity. His contributed to environmental protection efforts to promote water reuse, develop clean drinking water supplies for disadvantaged communities, and reduce risks from exposure to chemical contaminants.
