Brief Biosketch – Professor Baoshan Xing
  Dr. Baoshan Xing is Full Professor of Environmental & Soil Chemistry (since 2004) at College of Natural Sciences, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA, where he has been actively involved in teaching and research since 1996. Dr. Xing received his Ph.D. degree from University of Alberta, Canada in 1994. Dr. Xing’s current research includes environmental behavior and toxicity of engineered nanomaterials, interfacial processes in the environment, sorption and fate of organic chemicals in soils and sediments, natural organic matter isolation and characterization, and application of spectroscopic techniques in environmental and soil sciences.
  Along with students and colleagues, he has published over 300 refereed journal articles, most of which are frequently cited by his peers. His research work is ranked in the top 0.1% of cited authors for journals in environmental sciences and ecology with h-index currently at 60 and a total citation exceeding 14,700. He is one of the “Most Cited Scientists 2014” by Thomson Reuters, showing the impact and significance of his research. Currently, Dr. Xing is teaching 1) Environmental Soil Chemistry, 2) Advanced Soil Chemistry, 3) Inorganic Contaminants in Soil, Water, and Sediment, and 4) Environmental Impact of Manufactured Nanomaterials. He has been invited to present his research results at many universities and institutions.
  Dr. Xing is a technical editor of Journal of Environmental Quality, Associate Editor of Environmental Pollution, and an editorial board member of Environmental Science & Technology,Chemosphere, International Journal of Phytoremediation, Communications in Soil Science and Plant Analysis, and Pedosphere. Dr. Xing won the outstanding researcher award of his college in 2003, outstanding research achievement award from Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) in 2005, NSFC Overseas Young Scientist Award in 2005, Cheung Kong Visiting Scholar (China’s Ministry of Education) in 2008, ACSPSNA distinguished career award in 2012, a university exceptional merit award in 2012 and 2015, Kingenta Agricultural Science Award in 2013, and Marion L. and Chrystie M. Jackson Soil Science Award in 2014. He was also early promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2000 and to Full Professor in 2004. Dr. Xing is Fellow of both SSSA and Agronomy Society of America (ASA). His research program is recognized internationally.
