Wenxuan Shi

Marie Curie Researcher

Research Interests

My research focuses on phosphorus recovery from dairy processing waste. I am interested in developing the way to determine agronomical value and estimate environmental risk of different phosphorus-rich waste, and developing a way to provide optimised application method in agriculture.

Current Projects

I am currently working under the supervison of Prof Owen Fenton on the REFLOW project. The aims of this project is produce phosphorus rich dairy processing waste for agriculture using.
