Jiang TIAN, Professor. My research focuses on plant nutrition. My research objective is to clarify genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying legume (e.g., soybean, bean, stylo) root growth and development regulated by mineral nutrient stresses and metal toxicity on acid soils, especially for phosphorus deficiency. Recently, I have received more than ten major grants, including one grant for The Excellent Young Scientist from National Natural Science Foundation of China. I have published more than 34 papers in the esteemed journals, including Current Opinion in Biotechnology, Plant Physiology and New Phytologist.



Ph.D. in Plant Nutrition, South China Agricultural University, 2004;

M.S. in Crop Genetics and Breeding, South China Agricultural University, 2001;

B.S. in Tea Science, South  China Agricultural University, 1998
