Dr. Jheng-Jie (Jay) Jiang is an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Engineering at Chung Yuan Christian University. He completed his Ph.D. in Marine Environmental Engineering at National Sun Yat-sen University in Taiwan in 2015. During his studies, he joined the Environmental Research Institute at University of the Highland and Islands to work with Prof. Stuart Gibbs, and then received a fellowship by collaborating with Prof. Peter Brimblecombe in School of Environmental Science at University of East Anglia in UK.
His research interests included emerging contaminants, persistent organic pollutants (POPs), and microplastics. He has investigated a wide range of contaminants, including pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), for their occurrence, interaction, fate, and impact in the environments. By employing a fundamental understanding of emerging contaminants pathways, the aim of his research is to explore the links between engineering, sustainability and public health.
