My name is Qixing Ji, I am a graduate student in department of Geosciences, Princeton University. I graduated from Zhejiang University, China, majored in environmental engineering. My research in Princeton is to study biogeochemical reactions and microbial ecology within marine nitrogen cycle.
Be mature; be reasonable; be honest.
My Original thought.
I was born in Shenzhen, a tropical garden city in southern China. My undergraduate years was in the department of Environmental Engineering, Zhejiang University. I found my interest in environmental studies through several field studies including environmental impacts of municipal waste incineration plants, influence of agricultural runoff on water quality in rural areas and preservation of natural environment at the source of Qiantang River.
Besides field studies, I did lab work in the Institute of Environmental Microbiology. My previous researches were focus on Anaerobic Ammonium Oxidation (Anammox) granules, particularly on morphology and settling behavior modelling.
My research interests including biogeochemical reactions within nitrogen cycle, as well as microbial ecology in marine ecosystem. Please go to Bess Ward's research page for more information
