Research Profile

    Dr. Raymond J Zeng, male, professor, Ph.D. supervisor, is mainly doing research on biological wastewater treatment and has made a series of creative achievement in biological nutrient removal and bioenergy production from  wastewater. After he obtained doctoral degree in The University of Queensland in 2002, he worked successively in two foreign universities, teaching and doing research on biological treatment of wastewater. He came to work in USTC when selected into CAS Hundred Talents Program. Since 2003, he has published over 50 SCI papers in the field of environment, such as Environmental Science & Technology, Biotechnology & Bioengineering, Water Research, etc., which have been cited by others for over 500 times.
