Email: zhlin@siue.edu

Phone: (618) 650-2650

Profile

Research interests:

  • Developing phytoremediation technology for the cleanup of trace element contaminated water and soil, including the use of  phytoextraction, phytostabilization, phytovolatilization, and constructed wetland treatment systems
  • Understanding the control of major environmental factors over the biogeochemical cycles of contaminants in the air-water-soil-plant system, particularly with respect to transport, fate, and chemical transformation of pollutants in ecosystems
  • Characterizing ecosystem responses to phytoremediation processes and other anthropogenic perturbations, such as agricultural or industrial pollution and waste management
