School of Ecology and Environmental Science, ECNU, China
His areas of interest include applied research in environmental engineering and microbiology. His work is multi-disciplinary, ranging from studies on solid waste and wastewater treatment and bioremediation, and microbial ecology. He is member of Society of Water treatment and Reuse, Society of Microorganism Ecology of China and Microbiology of Shanghai. He has more than 140 papers in prints and various awards by Shanghai local government. He has been successful in securing 50+ projects including from National Science Founding of China, municipal funding of Shanghai and industrial research grants. He currently owns 10+ Chinese patents.
His research program focuses on the use of ecological and engineered biological systems for environmental pollution control, bioremediation, and the treatment of different kinds of wastewater. Current and recent projects include Control strategies of Antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) during landfilling; Landfill leachate treatment with aged refuse bioreactor technique, employing MFC (Microbial Fuel Cell) and MEC (Microbial electrolysis Cell) for energy recover from leachate, and AOP (Advanced Oxidation Process) for refractory wastewater treatment from chemical industry; Use of constructed wetlands and biological filters for river water quality management; Application of a novel engineered biological reactor with denitrification and anammox for nitrogen contained wastewater treatment, using innovative molecular and isotopic techniques for studying microbial ecology of complex communities to better understand and optimize the bioremediation and nutrient removal; Characterization and improvement of biological treatment performance through bioaugmentation; Assessment of a novel high efficient and low cost wastewater treatment system for rural areas, and assessment of integrated low-impact development of urban waste (refuse) management.
