Dr. Devin Rappleye

Dr. Devin Rappleye has over 12 years of experience in pyrochemical research and operations. He currently leads the PyRO lab at BYU.

Active projects in the PyRO lab seek to investigate new ways to simplify the purification of rare earths, improve the throughput of electrorefining in molten salts, develop hydrodynamic electrodes for molten salts, and advance electrochemical techniques (e.g., thin-cell electrochemistry) and sensors for molten salts. Before joining BYU, Dr. Rappleye worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for 4 years where he conducted and developed pyrochemical operations. Prior to joining LLNL, his doctoral and post-doctoral research was focused on developing electroanalytical techniques and analysis for complex molten salt mixtures containing multiple analytes. A collection of his published works can be found on his google scholar profile or on the publications page.
