Dr He is Professor of Molecular Soil Ecology at Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, The University of Melbourne. His research interests focus on the soil microbial biogeography and biogeochemical cycles of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) in soil ecosystems. His research employs advanced bio-molecular and physicochemical approaches to understand the distribution and diversity of microbial communities in soils, and the processes and mechanisms of microbes-mediated C, N and other elemental cycling.
Before joining the University of Melbourne in December 2013, Dr. He was Professor and Head of Department of Environmental Soil Science in the Research Centre for Eco-environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing. He is one of the coordinators of China Soil Microbiome Initiative which is a largest program in soil microbiology field with government investment of 300 M RMB (~60 M AUD). His group in The Melbourne of Melbourne has received financial supports from ARC DECRA, Discovery, and Linkage projects, other Australian government agencies and industries.
Dr. He has published more than 130 peer reviewed papers in international journals and these papers have been cited over 4000 times with an H index of 35. He serves international journals as Subject editor/ associate editor for Journal of Soils & Sediments and Soil Research, as editorial board member for FEMS Microbiology Ecology, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Scientific Reports, and Frontiers in Microbiology.
