Charge transport in biofilm.


I graduated from Harbin Institue of Technolgy, China, in 2008, with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Engineering. I finished my M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the same university in 2010. I obtained my Ph.D. degrees in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 2014. My graduate research focused on the examination and application of bioelectrochemical systems with different configurations,advised under Professor Bruce E. Logan. I joined Professor Nguyen's research group in September 2016.
