Zhuo Zhang embarked on his academic journey at the China University of Geosciences in Beijing, where he pursued a PhD in Hydrogeology. His doctoral research, completed in 2019, laid the foundation for his future explorations into groundwater chemistry and the behavior of various elements within this vital resource.


Upon receiving his PhD, Zhuo Zhang joined the Tianjin Center of the China Geological Survey as an assistant researcher. In this role, he has been actively engaged in projects that address critical issues related to groundwater quality and public health.


Dr. Zhang’s research primarily revolves around the transport and transformation behavior of arsenic, fluoride, and iodine in groundwater. By employing traditional water chemistry, isotopic techniques, and statistical analysis, he seeks to unravel the enrichment mechanisms of these elements. His work is instrumental in understanding how these elements accumulate in groundwater and their subsequent impact on human health.


The impact of Dr. Zhang’s research extends beyond academic circles, influencing public health policies and groundwater management practices. His findings help in developing strategies to mitigate the risks associated with arsenic, fluoride, and iodine contamination, thereby protecting communities dependent on groundwater resources.


Dr. Zhang’s work has been widely cited in scientific literature, reflecting its significance and relevance in the field of hydrogeology. His research papers contribute to the broader understanding of groundwater chemistry and its implications for environmental health.


Currently, Dr. Zhang leads a National Youth Foundation project titled “Research on Fluoride Enrichment Mechanism of Groundwater in Coastal Plain Area Based on Multi-Isotopic Analysis.” This project exemplifies his commitment to advancing knowledge in his field and addressing real-world problems. His ongoing research promises to yield insights that will benefit both the scientific community and the public.
