Dr. Qing Liang received a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences (2006) from the University of Washington, Seattle and a BS in Atmospheric Sciences (1997) from Nanjing University, China. Her Ph.D. thesis is on the chemistry and variability of long-range transport of Asian pollution to North America. She worked for three years as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center under the NASA Postdoctoral fellowship program administrated by Oak Ridge Associated Universities, conducting research on stratospheric ozone chemistry. In 2011, she joined Goddard Earth Sciences Technology and Research/USRA after two years with GEST/UMBC. Her main research interest is the atmospheric ozone chemistry and its interconnection with climate change and her goal is to support NASA's GEOS Chemistry Climate Modeling project with her experience on atmospheric ozone chemistry. Her publications include papers on long-range transport of Asian pollutions, global emission and transport of ozone depletion substances, e.g. CFCs and short-lived bromocarbons, and the impact of stratosphere-troposphere exchange on tropospheric ozone and NOx chemistry.
