Posted on 2015/9/22 17:50:00

The Jaffe Group welcomes back Dr. Lei Zhang as a postdoctoral research associate. In January of this year, Lei returned home to Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, after being a visiting scholar with our group for three months. We're pleased he has returned to our group and will be contributing his expertise as he focuses on the optical and chemical properties of fine particles in order to determine pollution sources. Lei shares our enthusiasm: "I am flattered to join the Jaffe Group. Everyone is so nice that I feel at home." Thanks, Lei! We're glad you've joined us.

Fast facts about Lei:

- Education: Ph.D. from Tsinghua University. His research focused on atmospheric mercury, including the chemical mechanisms of coal combustion, emission inventories for anthropogenic sources and long-term ground station observation.

- Most recently published paper: Updated Emission Inventories for Speciated Atmospheric Mercury from Anthropogenic Sources in China. Click here to see the full paper.

- Places where Lei was a visiting scholar: Environment Canada, the Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research in Italy, Washington University in St. Louis and the UW

- Favorite movies: Inception and The Shawshank Redemption

- Wish list while in the US: Visiting Yellowstone, improving skiing skills, seeing a live NBA game (fingers crossed for the Sonics' return) and more scientific papers--not in that order
