Educational Background

PhD, Nanjing University of Science and Technology (NUST) (2007)

MA, NUST(2004)

BA, NUST(1996)



Research Interests:
(1) Water resources management and environmental monitoring

In this sub-field, my research involves assessing the occurrence, distribution, and risk of heavy metals, pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), which threaten the safety of drinking water, such as antibiotics and endocrine disrupting chemicals in the surface sediments of lakes; and their novel environmental monitoring technology.

(2) Freshwater and wastewater treatment

In this sub-field, my research involves water treatment technology and its application, such as heavy metal, phosphorus, chemical oxygen demand, turbidity, and color reducing. My current research include experiment and computer simulation of adsorption of antibiotics and heavy metal from water.

(3) Water and soil ecological and chemical remediation

In this sub-field, my research involves eco-remediation of aquatic environment in lakes, rivers, reservoirs; Chemical remediation and phytoremediation of contaminated soil. One of examples is solidification/stabilization of heavy metals in polluted soils of mined area, and in fly ash from municipal solid waste incineration.
