I'm studying microbial ecology at SLU as a visiting PhD student. Before I came to Sweden I studied at North China Electric Power University for 4 years mainly focused on water environment. So, actually microbial ecology is a new world for me but I'm really interested in it. Currently, I'm doing some research on water microorganisms and sediment microorganisms from a small lake in China. Hopefully, I can find some interesting stories between them.
