Dr Hu Jiangyong graduated from Tsinghua University with B.Eng. in 1991. She completed her PhD in 1996 at Tsinghua University. After graduation, she jointed Department of Civil Engineering, NUS as a NSTB postdoctoral fellow in 1996. From 1998 onwards, she worked in the same Department as an Assistant Professor till June 2004. She is currently working in Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering as an Associate Professor specializing in the field of water treatment and water reclamation.
Dr Hu has more than eighteen years research experience on water treatment technology enhancement and water quality control. Her main research interests include water innovative treatment technology, emerging contaminants detection and removal, water disinfection and biofilm control, organic compounds characterization and treatability, water quality and health effect, and energy efficient treatment process. The aims of her current research include: (1) in-depth understanding of organics interaction with treatment units in water and wastewater treatment processes (2) knowledge in fate and behaviors of emerging contaminants in water treatment and reclamation (3) fundamentals on biofilm formation and control (4) development of integrated disinfection system for microorganisms inactivation (5) exploration of novel water and wastewater treatment technology for water quality enhancement and energy minimization.

Dr Hu has published more than 120 technical papers in various international journals. She has been acted as chairs of organizing committee and co-president for a few international conferences and symposium. She currently serves as editorial board members and reviewers for a number of journals as well as funding agencies.
