Chien Wang

Senior Research Scientist

Chien Wang is a Senior Research Scientist of Atmospheric Chemistry of the Center for Global Change Science and the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences. His research interests include atmospheric aerosols and clouds, tropospheric chemistry, and the roles of aerosol-cloud interaction in atmospheric chemistry, precipitation, and climate dynamics. He is also interested in examining the climate impacts of anthropogenic activities that alter atmospheric compositions or change the Earth’s surface properties or energy budget. His researches have been generously supported by NSF, NASA, EPA, NOAA, Ford Motor Company, the Singapore National Research Foundation through the Center of Environmental Sensing and Modeling (CENSAM) of the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), and by many other government agencies including US DOE as well as various industrial sponsors through the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change.
