Highly efficient, selective and reusable technology for long-term implementation of PFAS capture

​Zhuojing Yang specializing in polymer chemistry, with a particular focus on addressing the emerging issue of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination. After completing a master's degree in Molecular Biology at the University of Queensland in 2022, Zhuojing embarked on a transformative journey as a PhD at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) and Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) in 2023. Under the advice of esteemed researchers Dr. Cheng Zhang and Prof. Andrew Whittaker, Zhuojing's research focuses on designing environmentally stable and reusable fluorinated sorbents for the efficient capture of PFAS. With a strong commitment to environmental sustainability and public health, Zhuojing is determined to develop efficient and selective technologies for the long-term removal of PFAS from various contaminated water sources.
