Dr. Yu-Rong LiuMale, Doctoral Supervisor, Distinguished Professor of Huazhong Agricultural University, Member of State Key Laboratory of Agricultural Microbiology. He is interested in the remediation and risk assessment of soil pollutants as well as carbon and nitrogen cycles driven by microbial communities. He earned his PhD (Soil ecology) from Research Center for Eco-Environments, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010. He worked in Western University and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) of US as a visiting scholar from March 2014 to March 2016. He was awarded “The Fifth Outstanding Young Scholar Award” of Soil Science Society of China, “the 1st Prize of Young Scientific Innovation” of the Microbial Ecology Committee of the Ecological Society of China. He was supported by the project of “Excellent Scientific Fund of Hubei Province” in 2019. He is also the performance appraisal expert of the “Comprehensive prevention and remediation of agricultural non-point source and heavy metal pollution in farmland” of the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the evaluation expert of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. He has published more than 40 papers in SCI journals, including Nature Ecology & Evolution, Microbiome, Environ Sci Technol, Appl Environ Microbiol, Soil Biol Biochem etc. He is invited reviewers of more than 20 SCI journals, including Global Change Biol, Environ Sci Technol, Soil Biol Biochem, Environ Microb, Environ Int. etc.
