DR. SEPIDEH FARAJI

Before joining CSULB’s Chemical Engineering Department in 2010, Dr. Sepideh Faraji worked for six years as a process engineer in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, gaining experience in process engineering, simulation and modeling, and leading process engineering teams. She holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering from University of Tehran and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from University of Kansas. Her doctoral research was on using non-porous oxygen-permeable ceramic membranes for hydrogen (or syngas) production from methane.

Dr. Faraji’s focus is catalyst and reaction engineering with an emphasis on sustainability and green technologies. She is interested in improving chemical reactions and processes to reduce environmental pollution. Her current research areas are development of new heterogeneous catalysts, CO2 capture and utilization, ceramic materials, hydrogen production (for fuel cell applications), water treatment, and alternative fuels. She established the department’s Catalyst & Reaction Engineering Lab.
