International is pleased to confirm Jing Lu as the new FAFU Program Coordinator for the Faculty of Agriculture.

Coming to Canada through one of the Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University (FAFU) programs, Jing received both her BSc and MSc at Dalhousie University and is currently pursuing her PhD at Dal AC.

Her PhD is focused on using functional compounds from marine macroalgae to enhance the intestinal health of both humans and farm animals. She also serves as the Student Representative on the Animal Care and Use Committee of Dal AC and has recently been elected as the Vice-President External of Dalhousie Association of Agricultural Graduate Students.

Jing has been involved in multiple research projects, led and assisted with over 30 scientific trials. Her focus on pedagogy and student learning make her an effective communicator, which is seen in her work as a sessional lecturer. She is also a passionate mentor for many undergraduate Honour’s and MSc students. Exploring international horizons Jing was a visiting scholar at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria, where she expanded her repertoire of analytical techniques. She is also a recipient of the Harney Estate Scholarship and the Mitacs Globalink Research Award.

As a fellow FAFU student, Jing looks forward to using her own experience to enhance the implementation of the FAFU programs and strengthen the academic partnership between Dal AC and FAFU.
