ES&T Associate Editor Prof. Jennifer Field Visits KUST

On October 23, Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) associate editor and Oregon State University professor, Jennifer Field visited the Faculty of Environment Science and Engineering of KUST and gave a lecture on Using Past Lessons to Limit Future Environmental Impacts of Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) in Aqueous Film-Forming Foams (AFFF). About 200 teachers and students attended.

During the lecture, she explained the distribution characteristics, environmental risks and detection techniques of fluorine-containing and multi compounds in the environment in a simple and understandable way. Then, as an associate editor of SCI journal, she shared many tips for SCI paper submission. During her visit to KUST, she also shared some current hot research subjects with the teachers and students from the Key Laboratory of Environmental Soil Science, and gave suggestion on their present researches.

Prof. Jennifer Field is an academic leader in environmental and molecular toxicology at the Oregon State University. She develops a "push-pull" in situ trace detection method which can accurately detect the degradation of aromatic hydrocarbons by anaerobic bacteria. She is one of the first scientists to discover and study the environmental behavior of fluorine and multi compounds, making outstanding contributions to the discovery and detection of such new environmental pollutants. Her research interests include fluoride complexes and environmental behavior, environmental behavior and fate of organic pollutants, chemical analysis and pesticide residues and residues in fruit.
