Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Engineering for Development Research Fellow funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering. My research interests cover a wide range of sustainable water treatment technologies, including (1) nanofiltration and reverse osmosis, (2) nanoporous adsorbent materials, (3) photocatalysis, and (4) capacitive deionization.

I completed my BEng and MEng in Environmental Engineering at Beijing University of Chemical Technology. In 2016, I received a PhD in Chemistry at Heriot-Watt University and in the same year, I joined the University of Bath as a PDRA. In 2018, I was awarded a five-year Engineering for Development Research Fellowship. My fellowship will focus on developing a new capacitive deionization technology to provide fluoride-free water to local communities in East Africa.

Willing to supervise PhD

The successful PhD candidate will join the University of Bath’s Centre for Advanced Separations Engineering (CASE), which is the largest separations research centre in the UK focused on developing and deploying advanced separations technologies across a wide range of sectors (https://www.bath.ac.uk/research-centres/centre-for-advanced-separations-engineering-case/). The PhD candidate will also join the Water Innovation and Research Centre (WIRC@Bath) which provides a unique environment to engage globally in research and policy on water technologies and resource management (https://www.bath.ac.uk/research-centres/water-innovation-and-research-centre-wirc-bath/). In addition, the project will involve close collaboration (e.g., experiments, conferences, workshops) with collaborators in China and Tanzania - so if you like to travel this is a bonus!
