Metal mine tailings remediation; Environmental Microbiology, Microbial biofilm, and Biofilm biotechnology

 Research will focus on environmental microbiology in the complex system of tailings/technosols-rhizosphere.


Jing is currently a Research Assistant at Sustainable minerals Institute (SMI), The University of Queensland. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Engineering (Zhejiang Ocean University), PhD in Chemical Engineering (ACWEB, The University of Queensland).  Jing was UQ and RTP Scholarship and UQ Career Development Scholarship recipient and got UQ Outstanding Student Contribution to Faculty Life 2021 award. She is a member of the Australia Water Association. Her previous research focused on the bioremediation of environmental pollutants from wastewater, from the basic study of microbial metabolism to molecular genetics and biotechnological applications. She developed knowledge and skills in bioremediation, biofilm biotechnology, microbial bioreactor, environmental microbiology, and molecular microbiology, e.g., fluorescence biotechnology, Fluorescence in situ Hybridization, and confocal microscopy. Her current research will focus on environmental microbiology in the complex system of tailings/technosols-rhizosphere.
