Zhen Liu, Ph.D.
I am a scientist specialized in multi-scale modeling and analysis of atmospheric chemistry & air quality.
During my graduate schools in Peking University and Georgia Tech, I spent eight years studying air quality in China, from sources of particulate matter (PM) to ozone chemistry and precursor emissions, by analyzing data from satellites, ground sites, air crafts with statistical methods and numerical models.
My two and half years of postdoc at Sandia National Laboratories is nothing less than an adventure. I learned to collaborate with incredibly intellegent people with various backgrounds on incredibly challenging problems. I learned how to write a Markov Chian Monte Carlo sampler for statistical inference.
After leaving Sandia, I worked for three years as a senior consultant at Ramboll Environ, where I got involved in a large variety of air quality consulting and research projects around the world.
I joined California Air Resources Board in 2018,
