William A. Tarpeh is an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University. Tarpeh was among Forbes' 30 under 30 - Science 2019 list. Tarpeh's work has been featured in short videos by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, Interesting Engineering, and the University of California, Berkeley.
Tarpeh obtained his BS in chemical engineering at Stanford University in 2012, and his MS and PhD in environmental engineering at University of California, Berkeley (in 2013 and 2017, respectively).
Tarpeh was named among the Forbes 30 under 30 - Science 2019. In 2016, Tarpeh was named by NBC in its NBCBLK28, as one of 28 African American innovators under the age of 28. Tarpeh is a Cooke Young Scholar and College Scholar of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. Tarpeh also won Jeopardy Kids Week at the age of twelve.
Tarpeh conducts research in global sanitation in the field of development engineering, to recover resources from wastewater, turning waste chemicals into products such as fertilizers and disinfectants and cleaning the water in the process. During his PhD work, he developed a method for creating fertilizer by extracting nitrogen from urine and combining it with water. Tarpeh continues to engineer new chemical processes to extract nutrients from urine and is considered a burgeoning leader in his field.
