Education and Appointments:

  Dr. Ji-Zheng He graduated from Huibei Agricultural College in 1984 and earned his MSc (Soil Science) and PhD (Soil Chemistry) from Huazhong Agricultural University in 1989 and 1992, respectively. He did his postdoc research in The University of Naples, Italy by receiving the Maria-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship in 1995.4-1996.4, and in The University of Western Australia by receiving the Gledden Visiting Senior Fellowship in 1996.6-1997.6. He joined Huazhong Agricultural University as a lecturer of soil environmental science in 1992, and was promoted to associate professor in Dec. 1993 and professor in Dec. 1996.  

  Dr. He moved to Australia and joined Australian School of Environmental Science, Griffith University to study molecular microbiology in 2001 and received his PhD (Molecular Ecology) in 2004. He joined Research Centre of Eco-environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences at Beijing in 2005 as a research professor supported by Hundred-Talent Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences.   

  Dr. He has published more than 150 peer reviewed papers in Chinese and International journals, including more than 50 SCI papers. He is editor/ editorial board member of Journal of Soils & Sediments and FEMS Microbiology Ecology. 

Research Interest:
  1. Structure, diversity and distribution of soil microbial communities; 

  2. Theory and methodology of microbial ecology; 

  3. Biogeochemical cycles of C, N, S, Mn in soil ecosystems; 

  4. Molecular diagnosis of polluted soils and risk assessment.

Supported Projects:
Dr. He's research interests focuses on the soil microbial ecology and biogeochemical cycles of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) in soil ecosystems. His research employs advanced bio-molecular approaches and cutting-edge technology including synchrotron radiation and attempts to understand the distribution and diversity of microbial communities in soils, the processes and mechanisms of microbes-mediated C and N cycles in soil ecosystems, and the formation and reactions of biogenic soil minerals. His research projects are funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China (973 and 863 Programs), the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Chinese Academy of Sciences and industry sections.
