Research interests

Antibiotic and its resistance has become a global issue contaminating the ecological environment and endangering public health. As a PhD student, my research will focus on the fate and removal of antibiotics and their resistance genes (ARGs) in bioelectrochemical systems (BESs). It is a very important topic to explore what are the key factors and the main mechanisms that affect their removal. Therefore, some mathematics models will also be considered based on machine learning methods.
