Niu, Zhiyue


Zhiyue Niu, coming from China, has a MSc degree in environmental sciences specialized in aquatic ecology and water quality management. His general research interest is about microplastic in the environment. He has done both his MSc thesis and MSc internship within this topic. Currently, he is part of the microplastic research team as a junior researcher at VLIZ for the Interreg 2 Seas Mers Zeeën project “SeaBioComp”. In the three years, he’ll be working on the degradability of bio-based composites and their ecotoxicity to marine organisms. To the end, the results will help to answer if biobased composites is a potential solution for marine litter.
