Edith Cowan University (ECU)
Dr. Masoumeh Zargar is a lecturer and an Australian Research Council DECRA fellow at the School of Engineering, Edith Cowan University (ECU), Australia. She completed her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Adelaide in 2016. She then worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Fluid Science and Resources (FSR) Research Group at the University of Western Australia (UWA), where she got involved in multiple projects directly relevant to the oil and gas industry, some of which include: the study of fluid flow in porous media, separation and purification technologies, application of nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMR/MRI) for multiphase flow metering, emulsion analysis, and membrane fouling detection and so on. Currently, at ECU, she leads an active research group encompassing over 10 Ph.D. students and research associates. Her research vision is focused on developing advanced functional materials and membranes for water and wastewater treatment, resource recovery, hydrogen and CO2 separation and purification, green energy, desalination, circular plastic economy, and removing/degradation of emerging environmental contaminants (e.g., microplastics, nanoplastics, PFAS, etc.).
