In 2014, I finished my Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science at Tongji University, prior to joining Georgia Tech (GT), under the supervision of Dr. Ching-Hua Huang. I graduated with a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering in this August. My research focuses on chemistry and application of Ferrates (Fe(VI), Fe(V), and Fe(IV)), innovative water/wastewater treatment technology, and sustainable water reuse (check my 3-Minute-Thesis video on the right 😊). You can find my publications in high-impact journals, including Environmental Science & Technology and Chemical Engineering Journal.
During graduate school, I have engaged myself in many teaching and leadership positions, including co-instructor of CEE 3340 Environmental Engineering Lab, campus-wide Teaching Assistant (TA) Fellow, and graduate Leadership Coach in the Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) program. I was the recipient of the Environmental Chemistry Graduate Student Award from the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the Outstanding Doctorate Student Award from the Association of Environmental Engineering and Scientists (AEES) at GT. I was was also the student recipient of the Diversity Champion Award (check my acceptance speech on the right 😊) at GT for my role in promoting LGBT+ visibility on campus and the greater community.
In my spare time, I like working out and taking my precious four-legged friend GINGER out for road trips.
