2018.9.24 Yang moved back to Washington University in St. Louis together with his research supervisor, Dr. Jian Wang, who will be a full professor at Washington University. He will continue his research on the development and deployment of FIMS and data analysis of the DOE ARM campaigns.
2018.2.21 Yang came back from the ACE-ENA field campaign conducted in Azores, Portugal. This is an aircraft-based field campaign looking to solve the interaction between aerosols and clouds in the marine boundary layer.
2018.2.1 Yang was awarded with the "2017 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Student Abroad"! This is a prestigious award given to 500 Chinese PhD students (in all disciplines) globally to recognize their research achievements. The award includes a certificate and a check of $6000.

2017.12.3 Yang presented in the AGU 2018 meeting (New Orleans, LA) on the development of the fast integrated mobility spectrometer (FIMS) measuring aerosol size distribution with a frequency of 1 Hz. This is his first AGU meeting.
2017.10.12 Yang presented in the annual meeting of the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR, Raleigh, NC) about the development of the HFIMS. WashU also had the aerosol folks gathering!
2017.9.30 Yang visited Aerosol Dynamics Inc. at Berkerly CA to develop a humidity-controlled fast integrated mobility spectrometer (HFIMS). The HFIMS could measure the hygroscopicity of particles with six different sizes in just 3 minutes (conventionally takes 30 minutes). This would greatly help the measurement of aerosols with transient properties.
2017.6.10 Yang officially joined Brookhaven National Laboratory as a research associate in the Environmental and Climate Sciences Department.
2017.4.15 Yang is visiting Brookhaven National Laboratory for a month to get prepared for his new job as a Research Associate in BNL! He is going to work on using a water-based fast integrated mobility spectrometer (W-FIMS) for aerosol hygroscopicity measurement.
