Resume:
Professor Zifa Wang is Deputy Director of the Nansen-Zhu International Center of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, the editor of Chinese Journal of Atmospheric Sciences and SOLA Journal. He is in charge of air quality modeling for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He has developed a nested air quality prediction modeling system (NAQPMS), which is a tool to study air pollution such as Asian dust storms across a regional and urban scale and is widely used in several cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Zhengzhou, Shenzhen, and others, as a real time forecasting model of air quality. This model was included in a multiple model inter-comparison project. He studied and worked in Japan from 1998 to 2002 and got his PhD in Atmospheric Physics in 1997.
