Dr. Xiaoyu Xu is an Assistant Research Scientist in the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory at the University of Georgia. Dr. Xu’s research focuses on metal biogeochemistry and ecotoxicology of trace metals in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems with the goal of supporting and advancing environmental assessment, remediation, and regulatory practices. Dr. Xu received her PhD from the College of William and Mary Virginia Institute of Marine Science. Subsequently, she completed postdoctoral research at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and at the University of Georgia Savannah River Ecology Laboratory. She has received funding for her most recent work from the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Nuclear Security Administration, and the Savannah River Nuclear Solution for projects pertaining to heavy metal remediation on the Savannah River Site, located near Aiken, South Carolina.
