Dr. Brian J. Reid from University of East Anglia visited Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMHE, CAS) on March 30-31, 2017.
During Dr. Reid’s visit in IMHE, he had an in-depth discussion with Prof. ZHU Bo, Prof. TANG Xiangyu, Prof. ZHANG Sheng and their team about the cooperative research. Dr Brain J. Reid’s research interests lie in environmental chemistry, soil science, soil biogeochemistry and the sustainable use and remediation of soils. Central to his research is the investigation of soil-contaminant-microbe interactions. Fundamental understanding of these interactions has supported applied science to develop novel approaches to predict bioavailability of chemicals in soil. He has published extensively with citation of his manuscripts totaling >1000. At present, he is the editorial board member of Journal of Environmental Pollution and UKbranch chairman of Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
