Lijun Hou received his Ph.D from East China Normal University in 2004. He ever worked with Professor Wayne Gardner at Marine Science Institute, University of Texas at Austin in 2008 and 2009. Now, he is a professor of State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research, China. So far, he has published more than 70 papers in reputed journals, with high impact factors.
My research field mainly concerns about the biogeochemical cycling of nutrients and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in estuarine and coastl ecosystems. Recently, my work is particularly focused on the nitrogen transformation processes (e.g. nitrification, denitrification, dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium, anaerobic ammnoum oxidation) and their interactions with microorganisms in marine environments.
