Xiaojuan Feng is a professor of soil biogeochemistry at the Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences. She received a B.S. from Peking University (2003) and Ph. D. from University of Toronto (2009).
Her research focuses on investigating the transformation and transport of terrestrial organic matter under global changes and on assessing biogeochemical processes that affect terrestrial carbon cycling. In particular, she combines molecular-level techniques (including biomarkers, compound-specific 13C and 14C analysis) with landscape-scale experiments and sampling to examine environmental controls on the distribution and transformation of organic carbon in soils and aquatic systems.
Research areas: soil carbon cycling, microbial ecology, stable isotopes
