Nina Zhao is a PhD student in Environmental Engineering with UW Seattle. She is studying the fate and transport of synthetic steroids and other bioactive contaminants in the environment with a special focus on their transformation in both natural and engineered systems.
Rui Wang is a visiting PhD student from South China University of Technology. He is working with Dr. Ed Kolodziej on investigating the degradation mechanism of emerging contaminants in stormwater during the chlorination process.
Ting Tang is a visiting PhD student from South China University of Technology. She has been working on the environmental fate (partition and transformation) of a range of stormwater-associated pollutants for which little is known in the scientific literature.
Ximin Hu is a PhD student in Environmental Engineering with UW Seattle. He is studying data analysis on the LC-MS data and urban stormwater contamination issues.
