I hold a Ph.D. degree in Environmental science from the Nanjing University. I was a visiting scholar for one year at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research interests lie in the area of environmental functional materials with chemical contaminants. Currently, I am investigating the response of microbial communities to emerging contaminants. My laboratory pursues research projects employing environmental functional materials, microbiological, molecular biological and advanced oxidation technology to remove pollutants.
