SHORT SUMMARY OF SCIENTIFIC LIFE
Xudong Zhou (China, 1991) is bachelor degreed in Environmental Science (Northwest A&F University, 2013) and MSc in Environmental Engineering (Northwest A&F University, 2017). During his MSc he got a collaboration grant (Scientific and technological innovation team of water ecological security) in Northwest A&F University, where he studied the effects of these two antibiotics on the growth, surface morphology, and photosynthetic activity of algae, as well as the superoxide dismutase (SOD), malondialdehyde (MDA), lipid peroxidation, and protein contents. He is currently a PhD student in Environmental Science and Technology and his research tries to recover elemental sulfur from sulfate-rich wastewaters. He aims to identify the mechanisms of sludge using crude glycerol to reduce sulfate in non-methanogenic but sulfidogenic UASB under long-term stable conditions without methane production and model the required reactor.
Xudong’s current research interests are:
• Anaerobic stage of the process.
• Determine the biological activity and to characterize kinetic parameters of SRB for further modeling and optimization of reactors.
• Serum bottle tests
