Kim Oanh is a professor at Environmental Engineering and Management (EEM), Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand. She got Dipl. Eng. in Meteorology (1978) from Odessa Hydrometeorology Institute, Ukraine; M. Eng. (1991) and Dr. Eng. (1994) in Environmental Technology and Management from AIT, Thailand. She has started her work as a faculty member at AIT since 1997, focusing on teaching and research in air pollution engineering and management. In collaboration with international researchers, she conducted field measurements to characterize the levels and composition of particulate matter and toxic volatile organic compounds in major urban areas and remote sites in Asian countries. Her research group at AIT also made source monitoring and developed emission inventory of toxic pollutants and greenhouse gases for major sources in Southeast Asia for subsequent air quality modeling studies at regional/urban scales. Currently, her professional interest also extends to include short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP), and co-benefit quantification for source emission reduction. Under her supervision as of 2015 there are 110 master and 11 Ph D AIT graduates who are specialized in research on air pollution and atmospheric science. She published 2 books (ed), and authored/co-authored 9 monographs, 34 book chapters; 72 peer-reviewed papers in international referred journals; and a number of conference papers and keynote presentations. Her publications are found at: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Nguyen_Thi_Oanh. With her extensive experiences and professional connections for international networking she has conducted, in capacity of PI or Co-PI, more than 30 regional research projects.
