Speech Title：The significant role of electron donating capacity and carbon structure of biochar to electron transfer of zerovalent iron
Research Area: Remediation of contaminated soil and water, using biochar and metal oxide-based environmental nanotechnology
Introduction: Dr. Shengsen Wang is a full Professor of environmental soil chemistry in the College of Environmental Science and Engineering at Yangzhou University. He earned his PhD in Soil and Water Sciences at University of Florida, United States in 2014, and MS in Soil Science from Shandong Agricultural University, China in 2008. He has specialization in Environmental Soil Chemistry, Soil Remediation, Environmental Nanotechnology, Plant nutrition, Fertilizer technology. His research program focuses on remediation of contaminated soil and water, using biochar and metal oxide-based environmental nanotechnology. More recently, he has studied the electron transfer and mediating properties of biochar to enhance removal of potentially-toxic elements such as arsenic and chrome by zerovalent iron. He is a Provincial Expert in Pollution Control of Cultivated Land in Jiangsu Province (2020). He has received several awards and distinctions including Jiangsu Provincial Innovative and Entrepreneurial Talent, China (2018); Provincial Award for Excellence in Advising Undergraduate Thesis (2018); Research Leader Award of Yangzhou University (2020); Excellence in Advising International Students of Yangzhou University (2020); Yangzhou Lvyangjinfeng Talent (2017); Gamma Sigma Delta Graduate Student Award of Merit (2012).
