Isaac was a Resnick fellow while a graduate student in chemical engineering. He received his BS in chemical engineering from the University of Kansas where he conducted research on computational molecular design methodology and simulation of the primary events of photosynthesis. Isaac studied electrokinetic phenomena in confined geometries to develop engineering strategies that exploit surface properties to extract an electric current from a chemical gradient. His Resnick project investigated nano-conduit design to control the mixing of fresh water and salt water to engage new primary energy resources and increase the efficiency of desalination processes.
