On April 11, Professor David Y.H. Pui of the University of Minnesota, a Member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering (NAE), visited Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences (RCEES), Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Accompanied by Prof. HE Hong and Prof. ZHANG Qinghua, Prof. Pui visited the Smog Chamber laboratory of Center for Air Pollution Control Technology and State Key Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology.
Thereafter, Academican Fu Bojie, Director of Academic Committee of RCEES hosted Forum on Environment and Ecology (FEE), Prof. David Pui delivered a presentation entitled “Filtration Solutions to Mitigate PM2.5 Pollutants in Urban Air” for FEE. He presented details of his research on the development of instrumentation for aerosol sampling and measurements, determining the animal toxicity of engineering nano-particles, and development and application of particle filtration technologies for both emission sources and urban air. More than two hundred graduate students and researchers attended the FEE and participated in an informative discussion on Prof. Pui’s work.
Professor David Y. H. Pui is the Director of the world-renowned Particle Technology Laboratory at the University of Minnesota. He is also the Director of the Center for Filtration Research (CFR) with 18 leading international filtration companies (TSI, MSP) as members. He has a broad range of research experience in aerosol and nano-particle science and filtration technology and has published more than255 journal papers and 26 patents. He has developed several widely used commercial aerosol instruments. Dr. Pui has received many awards, including the Max Planck Research Award (1993), the Humboldt Research Award for Senior U.S. Scientists (2000), the Fuchs Memorial Award (2010) -- the premier international prize in aerosol science, conferred jointly by the American, German and Japanese Aerosol Associations -- and the Einstein Professorship Award (2013) by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
