Chen Xing
I am postdoctoral researcher in Chemistry (Separation Chemistry, Materials, Processes). My research is focused on development of treatment train for removing organic polluants and concentrating valuable materials from water.


My current research is focused on

  • Development of advanced treatment train for removing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) from water combining various methods such as membrane filtration, foam fractionation,ion exchange, etc. 
  • Sources, fate and transport of emerging organic pollutants in the environment such as PFASs and pharmaceuticals
