Xiao-Lan Huang

Dr. Xiaolan Huang is a highly motivated, interdisciplinary biogeochemist and environmental scientist. He received his BSc and MSc degree from Nanjing Agricultural University (China). He completed his PhD in Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel and did postdoctoral study at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami. Currently, he is working as an on-site contractor (research scientist) to Center for Environmental Solutions and Emergency Response, Office of Research and Development. USEPA. Dr. Huang is an innovative thinker. He has observed that the catalytic phenomena on the phosphate ester hydrolysis in the aged inorganic iron solutions and the iron oxides nanomaterials in the aqueous environment with the Michaelis-Menten kinetics behavior. A hypothesis on the inorganic enzyme was suggested (RSC Advance, 2012; Astrobiology, 2018). His finding is not only important for organic phosphorus transformation in different environments, including water eutrophication and plant acquisition, but also clues for biocatalysts and first life evolution.
