Jing Hu received her Ph.D. degree majoring in Soil and Water Sciences and minoring in Statistics from the University of Florida (2014), and M.S. (2010) and B.S. (2008) degrees from China Agricultural University with a specialization in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering. She is currently an Assistant Research Professor in the Geosystems Research Institute at Mississippi State University. Her research focuses include soil health, soil biogeochemistry, precision agriculture, uncrewed aircraft systems.
Research Interest:
1. Biological and Ecological Treatments and Techniques on Agricultural Pollutants
- Different scales of treatment wetlands and other eco-biological systems treating agricultural runoff and waste, soil and water remediation
2. Sustainable Agriculture and Agricultural resource management
-Water and irrigation management, fertilizer management, residue management, plant nutrition and soil fertility management
3. Climate-Smart and Precision Agriculture
-Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in agricultural systems, carbon storage and sequestration, alternate agricultural resources and practices in the face of climate change, uncrewed aircraft systems
4. Empirical and Theoretical Modeling in Eco-Biosystems
-Global and regional scale modeling on GHG emissions and nutrient cycling, machine learning
