Shiqiang (Nick) is currently a postdoctoral scholar in Prof. Mauter’s WE3Lab at Stanford University. His research focuses on energy-efficient wastewater treatment at coal-fired power plants. He utilizes electrochemical approach to selectively remove and recover nutrients, for instance Selenium, from wastewater generated in flue gas desulfurization.
Nick completed his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at Virginia Tech, dual M.S. in Chemistry and Environmental Engineering at National University of Singapore (Singapore) and Peking University (China), and B.Eng. in Environmental Engineering at Beijing Institute of Technology (China). During his Ph.D. study, his research focused on nutrient-energy-water (NEW) recovery from wastewater through forward osmosis, electrodialysis, bioelectrochemical system, and thermoelectric generator.
Outside of the lab, Nick enjoys cooking, jogging, watching TV series, going to music concerts, and traveling.
