Dr. Kang Xia is a professor in Environmental Chemistry  in the Department of Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences at Virginia Tech. USA.  Her interdisciplinary research and teaching programs are focused on: 1)  environmental occurrence and fate of anthropogenic organic chemicals and their  impact on environmental health; 2) Analytical method development for organic  chemicals in various complex environmental matrixes; 3) Wastewater treatment  technologies for resource recovery and reuse; and 4) biogeochemistry of natural  organic matter and its impact on terrestrial carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus  dynamics. Over the past 20 years Dr. Xia has worked with collaborators from a  diverse academic, government, and industry backgrounds on various environmental  related projects. She has obtained, as principle investigator and co-principle  investigator, close to $9 million competitive research funding from state and  federal funding agencies. She has taught 12 different environmental science  related undergraduate and graduate courses. Dr. Xia has authored or co-authored  168 professional publications, including 48 peer-reviewed journal articles, 5  book chapters, 3 refereed conference proceeding papers, 14 invited  presentations, and 110 conference presentation abstracts.



Dr. Mark Williams is an Associate Professor in Microbial  Ecology in the Department of Department of Horticulture at Virginia Tech. USA.  His interdisciplinary research and teaching programs are focused on: 1)  Microbial ecology in plant rhizosphere and roots in relation to ecosystems  processes; 2) microbial community responses to disturbances in plants, soil, and  honeybees; 3) special focus on mutualistic plant interactions with Diazotrophs  and mycorrhizal fungi; and4) biogeochemistry and soil community ecology of  organic matter dynamics during ecosystem development. Over the last 15 years he  has received a prestigious post-doctoral research award, over $3 million in  research funding as lead and co-investigator from sources such as the U.S.  National Science Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, and  Department of Energy. Dr. Williams has taught five different courses, mostly at  the graduate level, in the microbial, ecological, and microbiological sciences.  He has published 42 peer reviewed articles in addition to many presentations at  the national and international conferences.
