Academic Events

The academic lecture of Professor Li Wei of Nanjing University was held in the School of Geographical Sciences

        At the invitation of the School of Geographical Sciences and the Key Laboratory of Material Circulation and Pollution Control of Jiangsu Province, Professor Li Wei from the School of Earth Sciences and Engineering of Nanjing University came to our school for academic exchanges on November 18, 2021. Teachers and students of our school gave an academic lecture entitled "Application of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in Environmental Phosphorus Speciation Analysis". Relevant teachers and students from the School of Geographical Sciences and the School of Environment attended this lecture.

        Professor Li Wei is currently the deputy director of the Key Laboratory of Epigenetic Geochemistry of the Ministry of Education, Nanjing University, and the deputy director of the Nanjing University-Leeds International Joint Research Center for Earth Critical Zones. Selected into the Overseas High-level Talent Introduction Program of the Organization Department (2016), and won the National Outstanding Youth Fund (2017) and Jiangsu Outstanding Youth Fund (2015); mainly engaged in research on molecular environmental geochemistry, nano mineralogy, and soil remediation technology He has published 67 academic papers in important international journals such as Nature Communications, Eenvironmental Science & Technology, Geochimica Cosmochimica Acta, etc. The papers have been cited 2452 times (H index 27). Served as the associate editor of Geochemical Transactions (IF=4.70), Geochemical Journal (IF=1.5) and the review editor of Frontiers in Earth Science (IF=2.8). In addition, he served as a reviewer for many international SCI magazines (Nature Energy, PNAS, GCA, EST, etc.), an international reviewer for the US NSF and Swiss SNSF funds, and an reviewer for the Stanford synchrotron light source.
        In the lecture, Professor Li Wei introduced the phosphorus resource crisis facing the world and our country, the complexity of environmental systems, the application of synchrotron radiation technology and nuclear magnetic resonance technology in molecular environmental soil science, etc. The work of the research group using nuclear magnetic resonance technology to study the surface adsorption mechanism of phosphate and characterize the phosphorus occurrence of biomass charcoal and sediments was explained in detail. At the end of the lecture, Professor Li Wei had an in-depth discussion with teachers and students. The academic lecture ended successfully with the warm applause of teachers and students.
