Prior to founding Nagare, he was Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Oasys Water. He is the inventor of the Oasys forward osmosis (FO) desalination and water purification processes and co-inventor of the Oasys FO membrane, Osmotic Heat Engine (OHE) and Osmotic Grid Storage (OGS) systems. He has authored over 30 patents and peer-reviewed journal articles in desalination, water purification, chemical separations, heat exchange, and membrane and module design. At Oasys, Rob led the development of his FO desalination technology, demonstrating that it reduces the energy and cost of desalinating concentrated brines by over 50% compared to any previously available desalination process. In 2013, Oasys' FO technology was licensed globally to National Oilwell Varco for the treatment of oil and gas produced waters, and to Beijing Woteer for the treatment of power plant and industrial wastewater in China. Rob holds a B.A. in Theater and a PhD in Environmental Engineering from Yale University.
