Jayant Singh

Position title: Civil and Environmental Engineering, PhD

Jayant is a PhD student at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He is part of the Anex lab at the Wisconsin Energy Institute and is working on developing a novel Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology. Particularly, he is designing a lab scale continuous prototype reactor to evaluate its technoeconomic feasibility, before scaling up the design to a pilot scale. Through the EAP program, he wishes to learn relevant tools like life cycle assessment, costbenefit analysis and develop an understanding of how legislations and regulations affect the implementation of DAC at scale. Before starting his PhD, Jayant completed his master’s degree in environmental engineering from University of Florida and brings in substantive experience as a research assistant from the National Institute of Advanced Studies, India.
