Mr Jianting Feng (1994.12- ) obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees from Nanjing Forestry University, Nanjing, China and Hohai University, Nanjing, China in 2017 and 2020, respectively. His reseach background was about using Microbial‑induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) and Electroosmosis techniques to enhance the soft foundation. He was awarded the Outstanding Graduates of Jiangsu Province when he graduated with the Master Degree. Then he succeeded in applying for the China Scholarship Council (CSC) – Leeds Joint Scholarship (4 years) and started to pursue his PhD degree in 01/01/2021, supervised by Prof. Doug Stewart, Dr. Xiaohui Chen and Dr. Ian Burke.
His current PhD project is about investigating the evolution of Zn and Cu (two abundant metals in sewage sludge) speciation in the sludge-treated farm soil using complementary BCR (sequentially chemical extraction) and XAS (spectroscopy) techniques. This project aims to identify the tranformation pathway of Zn and Cu species over time and/or with repeated crop cycles so as to better control the associated riskes posed by contaminant metals when sewage sludge is repeatedly applied to the agriculture.
