Ngoc Bui

Assistant Professor

Ngoc Bui is an Assistant Professor in the Schools of Chemical, Biological, and Materials Engineering and of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science at the University of Oklahoma (OU). Dr. Bui’s research interests lie at the interface of advanced functional materials, interfacial phenomena, and energy-efficient and low-footprint separation technologies for sustainable energy, water, and the environment. Before joining OU in August 2020, she was a postdoc fellow at the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) where she led efforts in developing self-assembled supramolecular materials for water remediation via low-temperature thermal-based, adsorption-based, and membrane-based separations. Prior to LBNL, she was a postdoc fellow at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where she and her team demonstrated prototypes of carbon nanotube membranes for smart dynamic fabric materials. Dr. Bui earned her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the University of Connecticut with concentration on Membrane Separations under the advisement of Prof. McCutcheon.
