I use microbial ecology principles and tools to maximize bio-energy recovery from organic wastes. I became a research associate in 2015 at Imperial College London, working closely on a BBSRC-granted sLOLA project. Before that, I did my PhD research about microbial ecology of anammox and anaerobic digestion systems at both Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT, China) and Delft University of Technology (TUDelft, Netherlands). I got my B.Eng. and M.Eng from HIT as well.
