Wang Xin, male, is a professor and doctoral supervisor at College of Atmospheric Sciences, Lanzhou University. From 1999 to 2003, he studied in the Environmental Science Department of Nanjing Institute of Meteorology (now Nanjing University of Information Technology). From 2003 to 2009, he studied at the College of Atmospheric Sciences, Lanzhou University, and received a Ph.D. From 2010 to 2012, he went to the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Washington for academic visits. He is mainly engaged in the study of the physical, chemical and optical characteristics of absorbing particles such as black carbon, sand and dust in the snow. In 2015, he was awarded the National Natural Science Foundation of China 'Outstanding Youth'. In the same year, he also won the National Natural Science Foundation of China’s “Innovative Research Group” project (core member), and he is also a key member of the “Innovative Team Development Program” project of the Ministry of Education. In recent years, as the project leader, he has carried out many large-scale field observation experiments of seasonal snow features in Xinjiang, Qinghai, Inner Mongolia, and the three northeastern provinces of China. He has published more than 20 articles in SCI and core journals such as Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., J. Geophys. Res. and Atmos. Environ., and has been cited 410 times by SCI publications, of which 275 times were cited by others. Related research work has been cited and highly evaluated by the United Nations Environment Programmer’s Asia Regional Assessment Report and the fifth assessment report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and he was invited to review manuscripts for several journals in the field of atmospheric sciences.
