My research background is diverse, including drinking water and wastewater treatment. To promote the sustainable development of our society, I am interested in tackling contamination in water and wastewater using multiple approaches, such as membrane technology, biological treatment, ozonation, etc.
2019, Undergraduate course, "Engineering, Environment, and Society", University of Regina;
2019, Undergraduate course, "Introduction to Sponge City", Sun Yat-Sen University.
I am currently accepting M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. students. Candidates from Environmental Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Microbiology, and other related areas are welcome to apply. Those who have experience in water and wastewater treatment, and water quality analyses are particularly desirable.
Funding is available for qualified students.
I check my email daily. However, due to the volume of emails from prospective students, I am sorry that I am not able to respond to each individual. Sorry for being "irresponsive". If you do not hear back from me, it does not mean you are not good. I do also encourage candidates to look for external funding opportunities, such as MITACS and perhaps sponsorship from your own countries (e.g., CSC Scholarship from the Chinese government). Thank you for understanding.
