I obtained my bachelor’s Degree at TongjiUniversity, China (2012) and received my Master (2014)/PhD degree (2018)from Technical University of Denmark. Ihave joined the EMBLab at Westlake University since 2021.

My current research focuses on decipheringcomplex microbiome in engineering systems and providing practical solutions forprocess optimization. I have been working with many microbial mediated systemssuch as anaerobic digestion, biogas upgrading, syngas biomethanation, etc. Ihope my research will contribute to the valorization of organic residues andmake the world a better place to live.
