Dr. Tiezheng Tong


Dr. Tiezheng Tong came to CSU after completing a postdoc position in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at Yale University. He received his Ph.D. degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Northwestern University. Prior to his Ph.D. study, he graduated from Beijing Normal University (with the highest honor) and Tsinghua University with B.S. and M.S. degrees, respectively, both of which are in environmental engineering. He is the leading author or co-author of >20 peer-reviewed journal articles, which have been published on high-impact journals such as Environmental Science & Technology and Water Research. He is also the recipient of several academic and professional awards, including the Environmental Chemistry Graduate Student Award from American Chemistry Society, a student award from Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization, and the prestigious Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Student Abroad. His research interests include (i) membrane-based technologies for sustainable water supply and (ii) environmental nanotechnology. The Tong's lab is currently seeking two graduate research assistants (both Ph.D. and M.S. are considered) to start in Spring 2018. Those positions will be focusing on novel membrane materials and processes for sustainability water supply, and ecological and health impacts of engineered nanomaterials. Students who are interested in performing cutting-edge research in those rising areas are encouraged to contact Dr. Tiezheng Tong via email.
