简介：Qiuyan Yuan joined the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Manitoba in July of 2013 as an assistant professor. She earned her PhD degree from the University of Manitoba.
Dr. Yuan has 10 years research and development experience in sustainable nutrient removal and recovery processes applied to wastewater and biosolids. Since 2014, her research area has expanded to solid waste treatment and management. Currently, she is focusing on: 1) developing technology to produce high value product form solid waste including organic waste, glass and tires; 2) landfill methane mitigation using innovative bio-cover, 3) wastewater nutrient removal and recovery, including landfill leachate treatment.
As a technical committee member, she has been actively involved in international conferences in her field, including Solid Waste Association North America (SWANA) Northern Chapter Annual Conference, Western Canada Water Conference and Water Environment Federation (WEF) Nutrient Removal Specialty Conferences. Prior to joining the University of Manitoba, she was a process specialist at Stantec Consulting Inc. where she worked on many process design projects for water and wastewater treatment plants. From these projects she gained valuable industrial experience which she continues to use in her research.
