Yinlong Xiao received his bachelor’s degree (2011) at Sichuan Agricultural University. He received his master’s degree from the same university in 2013. Research focused on forest ecology.
He joined Institute of Environmental Sciences in September 2013 to pursue his doctoral degree.
The primary aim of his CSC-funded PhD-project is to use an ecologically sound theory as the trait approach as the basis to explain profiles of metal ecotoxicity and metal-based nanoparticles (NPs) toxicity. This way he use ecological traits not only for illustrating the target morphological and physiological characteristics of organisms, but traits will also be used for extrapolation of toxic effects between different species that not have been tested. Overall this constitutes a novel approach towards effective chemical risk assessment that has not been exploited before by other research groups.
