Haizhou is an Associate Professor at UC Riverside. He received his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from University of Washington, subsequent to completion of a M.S. and B.S. in Environmental Engineering from University of Washington and Sichuan University, respectively. Prior to starting as a faculty member at UCR, he conducted two-year postdoctoral research at University of California, Berkeley. His educational and professional background is in water quality, treatment and reuse - especially via the application of environmental chemistry principles. Outside of work, Haizhou enjoys tennis, beach volleyball, biking, kayaking, classical music (favorite composer Mozart), impressionism oil painting, and learning Romantic languages (current endeavors are Italian and French).
