Dr. Mian Chin received a B.S. degree from East China Normal University (Shanghai, China), a M.A. degree from Ball State University, and a Ph.D. degree from Georgia Institute of Technology. As a graduate student, she was involved in field experiments measuring atmospheric constituents, laboratory study determining atmospheric photochemical reaction rates and product yields, and one-dimensional photochemical model estimating stratospheric sulfur budget. Between 1992 and 1995, Dr. Chin was a postdoctoral fellow in the Division of Applied Sciences, Harvard University, where she worked with 3-dimensional regional and global atmospheric chemistry and transport models for studying tropospheric ozone, aerosols, and trace gases. From 1995 to 1997, Dr. Chin was a Research Scientist at Universities Space Research Association (USRA) and from 1997 to 2003 a Research Scientist/Senior Research Scientist at Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2003, she joined NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, concentrating on atmospheric model development and satellite data analysis.
