Environmental Fate and Ecological Risks of Retinoic Acids and their Metabolites in a Highly Urbanised Coastal City
* Kenneth M. Y. LEUNG
(The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China)

Kenneth Mei Yee Leung is Professor of Aquatic Ecology and Toxicology at School of Biological Sciences in the University of Hong Kong. So far, he has published over 190 peer-reviewed articles which are principally related to marine ecology, pollution, ecotoxicology and environmental risk assessment as well as eco-shoreline engineering. He is among the Top 1% Cited Scientists in Ecology/Environmental Sciences in the world, according to Clarivate Analytics’ Essential Science Indicators. He is a founding Editor-in-Chief of the SCI journal, Regional Studies in Marine Science (Elsevier) and a Subject Editor for Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management (Wiley) and Environmental Science and Pollution Research (Springer). He is currently serving as an expert member in various advisory committees for the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). In 2018, he was appointed as a Justice of the Peace by the HKSAR Government. Owing to his professional achievements and dedicated community services, he was selected as one of the “Ten Outstanding Young Persons” for Hong Kong by Junior Chamber International in 2010. In 2017, he was awarded the 19th Biwako Prize for Ecology by the Ecological Society of Japan in recognition of his contributions to aquatic ecology and toxicology in Asia-Pacific region, and conferred as a Fellow of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). In 2018, he was selected as one of the top 100 Asian Scientists by Asian Scientist Magazine (https://www.asianscientist.com/as100/).

From 2003 to 2014 he was on the faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research focuses on the development innovative technologies for water treatment and waste valorization, and the study of redox transformation mechanisms for contaminants of emerging concern (CEC). Dr. Strathmann is the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and currently serves as an Associate Editor for Environmental Science & Technology. Dr. Strathmann’s formal training includes a PhD in environmental engineering from Johns Hopkins, BS and MS degrees from Purdue, and postdoctoral training at Princeton.
Eddy Y. ZENG
Jinan University, China
*Title (Tentative):
Field-Calibrated Estimates of Riverine Microplastics (Plastics) Inputs to Global Oceans
* Eddy Y. ZENG
(Jinan University, China )

Dr. Eddy Zeng is a professor and the dean of the School of Environment at Jinan University, Guangzhou, China, and also a Fellow of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC). He received his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California upon receiving B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Science and Technology and Sun Yat-sen University, respectively. He is currently serving as the editor-in-chief of Environmental Pollution and editorial advisory board member of Environmental Science & Technology, among others. Dr. Zeng’s group focuses on assessing the sources, fate and exposure effects of organic contaminants and microplastics, as well as on development of novel passive samplers for measuring freely dissolved organic chemicals in aquatic systems.
