Current Graduate Students


Weitao Shuai graduated from Peking University, China in 2015 with a Bachelors of Engineering degree. Motivated by her interests in environmental studies, she participated in the research project Chemical Remediation of Rare Earth Elements Contaminated Soil and Tailings in Southern Jiangxi Province, China from 2014 to 2015. During the summer of 2014, Weitao worked as a research assistant intern in INRS (Institut national de la recherché scientifique), Quebec, Canada and conducted experiments on Solid-state Fermentation Based Fumaric Acid Production by Rhizopus Oryzae 1526 Using Apple Pomace as Substrate. These experiences equipped her with foundation in environmental chemistry and microbiology, and aroused her interests in understanding the fate and transformation of pollutants in natural systems.
