Dr. David Quiros is a Manager at the California Air Resources Board. He was a student of the Environmental Science & Engineering program at UCLA, and performed roadside ultrafine particle characterization studies in the Zhu research lab. At CARB, he has worked on vehicle exhaust measurement studies, and supported regulatory development for light-duty passenger car, heavy-duty truck, and freight related programs. His group is currently working on new requirements for port equipment and marine vessels to use cleaner combustion and zero-emission technologies. He also oversees stationary diesel engine regulations at CARB, and works on the verification of aftermarket controls, such as diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems for diesel engines. He contributes to interagency governmental discussions on advancing infrastructure to support charging and fueling of zero-emission equipment.
Emily Marino completed her MPH/MURP degree at the Fielding School of Public Health and Luskin School of Urban Planning in 2019. While attending UCLA, Emily worked with the Zhu lab on a community-based air quality monitoring study that evaluated the impacts of freeway traffic on indoor and outdoor air quality and assessed the efficacy of using low-cost air sensors for community-based research. Emily also completed an internship with the South Coast Air Quality Management District, which focused on evaluating the performance of low-cost air sensor technologies. Since graduation, Emily has been working as an environmental planner, providing air quality and greenhouse gas technical assessments, California Environmental Quality Act analyses, and climate and sustainability services to local governments and utility providers in California.
Dr. Eon Lee received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at UCLA in 2013 and did his post-doctoral research at the UCLA Department of Environmental Health Sciences. His previous research at UCLA focused on aerosol science and exposure assessment by taking both experimental and modeling approaches to address mobile source air pollution issues in the in-cabin, on-road, and near-freeway environments. He is currently affiliated with California Air Resources Board (CARB) and continues his work at the Heavy-Duty Emissions Testing Laboratory of CARB.
Qunfang (Zoe) Zhang
Dr. Qunfang (Zoe) Zhang is a Staff Air Pollution Specialist in Research Division of California Air Resources Board (CARB). She studied the exposures of school children to traffic emissions at school classrooms and in school buses, and received her Ph.D degree in Environmental Health Sciences at UCLA in 2012. After joining CARB, she has worked on many in-house research and managed research contracts related to indoor source emissions, personal exposures and building characteristics. She has also worked extensively with other government agencies (e.g., DOE, CPSC, Health Canada, and CEC), standard organizations (e.g., CHPS, ASTM, and UL), and industry representatives (e.g., AHAM) to provide technical comments and help adopt latest research findings in the development of policies and standards.
Tianyang (Tony) Wang
Dr. Tianyang (Tony) Wang received his D. Env degree from the Environmental Science and Engineering program at UCLA in 2019. He is currently an Air Resources Engineer in the California Air Resources Board (CARB). At CARB, he mainly works on the SB 375 program, which is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coordinated land-use and transportation strategies. His doctoral dissertation topic is Achieving Sustainable Net-Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions in California and its Health Cobenefit.
Tiffany Nam received her MPH degree in Environmental Health Sciences at UCLA in 2020. Her research focused on developing health communication tools on various health impacts related to adverse air quality. Tiffany’s passion includes communicating and disseminating information about environmental hazards to ensure public health and safety. She is currently a Health Education Coordinator for the California Poison Control System at UCSF and provides poison prevention, education, and outreach programs across California.
Dr. Yan Lin received his Ph.D. in Environmental Health Sciences at UCLA in 2019. With a biomarker approach, Yan’s research aims to illustrate the impact of air pollution on population’s exposure to toxic chemicals and the subsequent health effects. Advised by Dr. Yifang Zhu, his doctoral research focused on the early cardiovascular effects of air pollution. Yan Lin is currently a postdoctoral associate at Duke Global Health Institute, where his research aims to elucidate the pathophysiologic mechanisms by which air pollution causes adverse birth outcomes.
Yu-Han (Amy) Chen
Yu-Han (Amy) Chen received her master’s degree in Environmental Health Sciences at UCLA in 2020. Her research focused on applications of low-cost air sensors (i.e., PurpleAir). She is now working under Air Quality Planning and Science Division in California Air Resources Board (CARB).
Zemin Wang received her master’s degree in Environmental Health Sciences at UCLA in 2020. Before joining UCLA, she had her Bachelor’s degree in Preventive Medicine at Peking University Health Science Center. Her research investigated the performance and application of low-cost air monitoring sensors. She also evaluated the impacts of residential gas appliances on indoor and outdoor air quality and public health in California.
