报 告 人：庄杰
Jie (Joe) Zhuang is a professor (tenured) at the Department of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science at the University of Tennessee (UT), Knoxville. He received his Ph.D. in Soil Science from Shenyang Agricultural University in 1993. He did his postdoc research at the University of Delaware and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). He is currently the managing director of China-US Joint Research Center for Ecosystem and Environmental Change (sponsored by Chinese Academy of Sciences, UT, and ORNL). He is the general coordinator of China-US Collaborative Training of Ph.D. Student Program (2014-present, sponsored by the China Scholarship Council). He is the executive Co-PI of the China-US Collaborative Program on Food, Energy and Water Systems sponsored by NSF and NSFC. He was the director of the Institute for a Secure and Sustainable Environment at UT (2007-2013). He was the general coordinator of US-China EcoPartnership for Environmental Sustainability (a program established by US Department of State and the National Development and Reform Commission of China). He is on the review panel for NSF, US Department of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China. He has organized more than 30 China-US joint conferences on Environment and Energy. He is an Editor for Scientific Report and Ecotoxicology. He has published more than 100 papers and served as the guest editor for 6 special issues for scientific journals.
His research focuses on (1) Fate and Transport of Colloidal Contaminants in Subsurface Environments, including transport of colloids and pathogens during unsaturated transient flow, nano-remediation of heavy metal polluted soils, and movement of organic contaminants in nano-/micro-pores; (2) Soil Remediation and Ecological Restoration, including subsurface engineering for contaminant immobilization and leaching, multi-wall permeable reactive barriers, and soil hydrologic and structural impacts on bioremediation; (3) Soil Carbon Management, including carbon sequestration in soil nano-/micro-pores, soil structure formation and organic carbon preservation, and transport of dissolved organic carbon to deep soil horizons.
