Biography

Yaoxian Huang is an atmospheric chemist and his research group typically employs state-of-the-art 3-dimensional global chemistry-climate models to quantify impacts of anthropogenic emissions (e.g., air pollutions) on regional and global air quality, climate change and public health, in conjunction with in-situ, aircraft and satellite observations. Yaoxian Huang received his PhD in Environmental Engineering from Michigan Technological University in December 2014. Before joining Wayne State University as an Assistant Professor in Environmental Engineering, Yaoxian Huang was trained at the University of Michigan (2017-2019), Yale University (2016-2017) and NOAA (2015-2016) respectively as a postdoctoral research fellow.
