Dr Jing You is currently a Professor in the College of Environment, Jinan University. Her general research interests are in interdisciplinary areas linking chemistry and toxicology techniques to their environmental applications with the objective of understand ecological risk of environmental contaminants in aquatic ecosystem. She is primarily interested in addressing research questions about environmental fate and adverse effects of organic contaminants, with a particular focus on bioavailability and toxicity of current-use pesticides in sediment. Identifying the principal cause of toxicity in the presence of multiple stressors using toxicity identification evaluation and effect driven analysis techniques is also of her special interest.
Her current projects include understanding the influence factors of bioavailability of contaminants in sediment, evaluation of bioavailability and toxicity of organic contaminants by biomimetic techniques, and investigating joint toxicity of sediment-associated contaminants.
