Chair in Environmental Science
University of Salford
United Kingdom


I obtained a PhD in Environmental Science from The University of New South Wales in 1995 (thesis was submitted for examination in 1994). Before joining University of Salford, I held senior academic positions at University of Southern Queensland and South China Agricultural University. Earlier academic appointments were with Southern Cross University, The University of New South Wales and South China Normal University. I also worked as a professional environmental consultant with a global consulting company (Brisbane Office, Golder Associates) during the period from 2005 to 2009. I am an Associate Editor for Journal of Environmental Management (Elsevier; impact factor: 4.010) with direct responsibility for making final decision on manuscripts (over 110 manuscripts per year). TEACHING I have teaching interests in environmental science, environmental management, environmental chemistry, environmental impact assessment, environmental technology, soil science and restoration ecology.

Research Interest

I have a broad range of research interests in environmental sciences with a particular focus on environmental issues related to acid sulfate weathering in mine areas (acid mine drainage) and coastal lowlands (acid sulfate soils). More recently, much effort has been made to develop cost-effective technologies for remediation of petroleum hydrocarbon-contaminated soils with a special reference to the Kuwait oil lake areas, an environmental legacy of the first Gulf War. Other research interests include chemical behaviour of heavy metals and pesticides in water-soil-plant systems, characterization and treatment of industrial wastes, ecotoxicology, soil carbon sequestration, climate change adaptation, and payment for environmental services (PES).
