Dr. Yang Wang's research focuses on aerosol instrumentation and measurement, aerosol-cloud interaction, and functional nanoparticle synthesis. He worked on a fast-integrated mobility spectrometer (FIMS) that measures aerosol size distributions every 1 s, and high-resolution differential mobility analyzers (HR-DMAs) that measure particles with sizes down to 1 nm. He also evaluated and developed portable particle sensors for air quality monitoring. Yang has authored and co-authored 28 peer-reviewed publications and is the Outstanding Reviewer of the Journal of Aerosol Science. He is the recipient of the Gesellschaft for Aerosolforschung (GAeF) PhD Award during the 2019 European Aerosol Conference.
