Biography:

Dr. Huisheng Bian received a B.S. in atmospheric science from Nanjing University in 1985, a M.S. in 1988, and a Ph.D. from University of California, Irvine in 2001.  From 1988 to 1995, she worked in Chinese Meteorological Academy as an assistant researcher, where her research interest was regional air quality modeling.  Her Ph.D. work focused on improving, validating, and applying UCI global chemistry transport model for tropospheric ozone simulation, as well as on developing a module (Fast-J2) to accurately simulate stratospheric photolysis in global chemistry models.

Upon graduation, Dr. Bian became interested in atmospheric aerosols, their distribution and their photolytic and heterogeneous impacts on tropospheric chemistry.  Her current major research interest involves improving and applying multiple CTMs to the atmospheric chemistry studies and providing mission planning and mission support.
