Chengrong Chen is a professor in environmental biogeochemistry with strong interests in waste recycling and management of contamination. One of key research areas in his group is the detection, monitoring and mitigation of microplastic pollution in soil and wastes. His group has used the advanced FTIR microscope (Spotlight 400) to identify and detect microplastic in biosolid and soil samples. This research will contribute to the improved understanding of the source, sink and pathway of microplastic in the soil-plant system. Prof Chen was a past ARC Future Fellow and has published over 200 refereed papers with a H-index of 60.
