LI Ying
Associate Professor


Li Ying, female, born in 1980, Ph.D., Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Associate Professor, Department of Marine Science and Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology.

The main research directions include: marine atmospheric remote sensing, atmospheric physics and atmospheric environment, and sea-air interaction research. The main research method is to apply satellite remote sensing and numerical simulation, combined with external field observation to study the interaction between human activities and air pollution and climate.

A series of important achievements have been made in the application of atmospheric remote sensing and numerical simulation to study the mechanism and control of air pollution in the Pearl River Delta. He has undertaken and participated in several Projects, involving many important aspects of air pollution control (observation data analysis, source emission inventory estimation, air quality model improvement, source analysis, control strategy research, and health exposure).

In the past five years, he has published 40 SCI papers in international authoritative academic journals such as Environmental Science & Technology, Remote Sensing of Environment, Environmental Pollution, Journal of Geophysical Research, Science of the Total Environment and Atmospheric Environment, with a total of more than 1200 references.
