Every three years, the International Congress on Membranes and Membrane Processes (ICOM) is held in a different venue. It gathers together students, young and experienced researchers from all over the world, who share the same passion for technical innovations and progress regarding membrane-related work. This year, around 1100 participants attended the conference, including the most renowned membrane researchers of European, North American and Asian Membrane Societies.
Agathe Lizée was one of the students awarded with the “Student Oral Presentation Award”. Her presentation, entitled “Zeta potential of layer-by-layer assembled polyelectrolyte membranes: misinterpretation due to the electrokinetic leakage phenomenon” was focused on the work she conducted for her 1st year of PhD, under the supervision of Anthony Szymczyk and Patrick Loulergue (Chemistry and Process Engineering team). The aim of the presentation was to highlight the dramatic consequences of the electrokinetic leakage during streaming current measurements conducted on porous samples. The understanding of the electrokinetic leakage is the main target of Agathe’s PhD, in order to use it as a source of new information regarding the membrane porous layers.
Agathe is now carrying on with her work and the second year of her PhD. She would like to thank her supervisors and co-workers for their help and support.
