Mingjin Tang

Mingjin Tang is currently a research professor Guangzhou Institute for Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. He received his BSs and MSc in Peking University (China), China and his PhD in Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (Germany). He carried out postdoctoral research at University of Cambridge (UK) and University of Iowa (USA) before he joined Guangzhou Institute for Geochemistry.

His research is focused on atmospheric chemistry of mineral dust aerosols. He is interested in heterogeneous and multiphase reactions of mineral dust aerosols (and tropospheric aerosols in general) and their hygroscopicity and ice nucleation activity. He has recently extended his research to sources, transport, transformation and solubilities of aerosol trace metals (such as Fe, Mn and Al) and their impacts on atmospheric chemistry, human health and marine biogeochemistry.

He has been an associate editor for Atmospheric Measurement Techniques since 2017, and is one of the founding members of Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) Working Group 167 (Reduce the Uncertainty in Soluble aerosol Trace Element Deposition, RUSTED).
