Jian Liu, Dr. is no longer associated with this organization.

I am currently a post-doc working on SWAT modeling, phosphorus indices and compiling experimental data, with the aim of appropriate management of animal manure (especially over winter) to reduce nutrient losses to water. I have a research background of soil science, specialized in water quality management. During PhD, I investigated phosphorus leaching as influenced by animal manure and catch crops, by carrying out laboratory and field experiments and model simulations.
