Applied Geochemistry主编
    Zimeng Wang is a professor and Cyrus Tang Faculty Fellow in the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering at Fudan University, Shanghai, China. He directs the research cluster focusing on water-soil interfacial processes. Employing a combination of aquatic chemistry, analytical techniques, and microbiology, his team endeavors to uncover novel and significant biogeochemical processes occurring at water-soil interfaces. His work places particular emphasis on the implications these processes have on climate change, urbanization, agricultural sustainability, and public health. Recently, his research interests have expanded to include redox-active metastable phases, methane cycling processes in water and sediments, and biogeochemical processes in permafrost soils. Dr. Wang has been honored with the James J. Morgan Award and the Ebelmen Award, two prestigious early-career recognitions in environmental chemistry and geochemistry, respectively. His research has been featured in leading scientific journals, such as Nature Geoscience, Science Advances, Science China Earth Sciences, ES&T and GCA
    He is the Editor-in-Chief of Applied Geochemistry, an Elsevier journal affiliated with the International Association of GeoChemistry. He also serves as the current executive president of Young Faculty Association of Fudan University.
