Yale started his PhD in October 2016 at Wageningen UR. His project is mainly about the configuration and operation of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) as a tool to balance the gut microbiota of the farmed juvenile fish.
Before Yale started his PhD, he obtained a BSc degree in aquaculture at China Agriculture University after which he finished his MSc degree in agriculture bio-environment engineering at Zhejiang University, China. His previous study focused on solid-phase biological denitrification treatment for RAS wastewater and the interaction between bacteria community structure and reactor performance.
