Overview

OverviewText1

  • Dr He Joined The University of Melbourne as Research at Melbourne Accelerator Program (RAMPA) Professor of Molecular Soil Ecology.  His research interests focus on the soil microbial biogeography and biogeochemical cycles of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) in soil ecosystems. His research employs advanced bio-molecular and physicochemical approaches to understand the distribution and diversity of microbial communities in soils, and the processes and mechanisms of microbes-mediated C, N and other elemental cycling.

    Before joining the University of Melbourne, Dr. He was Professor and Head of Department of Environmental Soil Science in the Research Centre for Eco-environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing. 

    Dr. He has published more than 120 peer reviewed papers in international journals and these papers have been cited over 5000 times with H index of 37. He serves international journals as Subject editor/ associate editor for Journal of Soils & Sediments and Soil Research, as editorial board member for FEMS Microbiology Ecology, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Scientific Reports, and Frontiers in Microbiology.
