Zhang Lili

Research Fellow

School of Environmental Science and Engineering


Zhang Lili graduated from Shandong University and got her Ph. D. in 2016. During the period of doctorate study and postdoctoral work, her research mainly focused on the biotreatment of agricultural wastes using aerobic composting method. She successfully performed the cow manure management with a 90 m3 fermentor, and the composition and function of dominant microiota was revealed with the integrated meta-omics study. She hosted a Natural Science Foundation of Shandong Province and a Chinese Postdoctoral Science Foundation. She participated in several research projects of National 973 plan and national key technical projects.
