Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Jun Liu joined IIASA's Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases (AIR) Program in March 2016, to work on the air pollution impact in GAINS model. Her research topics at IIASA include air quality modeling, and source apportionment of atmospheric pollutants with a downscaling method in GAINS, particularly focusing on populous cities around the world.
Dr. Liu graduated from Peking University, China, with a bachelor's degree in Environmental Sciences, and completed her PhD at the College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Peking University. During her PhD studies, she worked on emission control strategies and human health risks of air pollution in China, by means of GAINS and atmospheric chemistry and transport models.
Before joining in IIASA as a Research Scholar, Dr. Liu participated in IIASA's 2014 Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) and worked on air quality benefits of coal substitution policies in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region in China. She received the IIASA Mikhalevich Award for her work and returned to IIASA in July 2015.
