Professor Lin Wang joins the Associate Editor team

Welcome to Environmental Science: Atmospheres!

We are delighted to welcome Professor Lin Wang, Fudan University, China, as a new Associate Editor for Environmental Science: Atmospheres.


I am honored to serve our community as an associate editor for Environmental Science: Atmospheres, where the latest progress that advances our understanding of our atmosphere are published, and would like to solicit your contribution to the journal as an author and as a reviewer. Together we promote the development of atmospheric science and related disciplines.”




Lin Wang is a professor at the Department of Environmental Science & Engineering of Fudan University. He received both his B.Sc. in Applied Chemistry (1999) and M.Sc. in Environmental Sciences (2002) from Fudan University, and his Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology (2006) from the University of California, Riverside.

“I was lucky enough to take my Ph.D. training in atmospheric chemistry under Prof. Roger Atkinson and Prof. Janet Arey, from whom I learned not only critical thinking but also attentiveness and persistence. It is amazing how chemistry can alter the properties of the trace gases and aerosol particles in the atmosphere, and I am deeply attracted.”

After a short stint as a postdoc at the University of California, Riverside, he moved to Texas A&M University as a post-doctoral researcher (2007) and then as an assistant research scientist (2009).

“I got to know new particle formation that is between the edge of chemistry and physics when I was a postdoc with Prof. Renyi Zhang at TAMU. Since then, I started to focus on the chemical processes that are essential for new particle formation and growth.”

In 2011, he was appointed as a research professor at the Department of Environmental Science & Engineering of Fudan University and later promoted to a full professor in 2013.

Lin’s research interests in atmospheric chemistry focus on the chemical evolution of atmospheric volatile organic compounds and aerosol particles. He serves on grant committees and as a scientific advisory board member for various journals and research organizations.

“In many cases, our research is closely related to the life quality of human being, i.e., air quality and climate change. It is already very hard to elucidate the real science behind the numerous variables in the atmosphere, but it is even harder to propose an effective and economical action to address the discovery.”
