Research Director; Research Professor
Office Phone: 865-974-1325
Dr. Zhuang is a research director for the Institute for a Secure and Sustainable Environment (ISSE), a research professor at the Department of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science, and the coordinator of the China-U.S. Joint Research Center for Ecosystem and Environmental Change. Over the past two decades, Dr. Zhuang has worked on many challenging scientific research projects in the United States, Japan, and China. His research is focused on the fate and transport of contaminants (viruses, radionuclides, colloids, and munitions constituents) in the environment; soil carbon management; soil hydrology; and carbon-water-nitrogen fluxes of terrestrial ecosystems.
Currently, Dr. Zhuang is an editorial board member for three international journals, Ecotoxicology, Environmental Management, and Pedosphere. He also contributes a significant amount of his time to the JIBS/ISSE China-U.S. Initiative, with the aim of promoting U.S.-China collaborations in the areas of global environmental change, bioenergy sustainability, and international education.
