Dr. AN Tai-cheng was born in Gansu, China, in 1972. He received his B.S. in Chemistry from Northwest Normal University in 1996, and his Ph.D degree in 2002 from Zhongshan University, China. Now, he is a professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Science, and vice-director of Guangdong Key Laboratory of Environmental Resources Utilization and Protection, China. His research interests include: 1. The transportation mechanisms, fate prediction and health effect of emerging organic contaminants, for example EDCs, PPCPs and BFRs, etc, in the environment, especially the identification of intermediates and their potential decontamination mechanisms in the natural or simulated systems; 2. Characterization, optimization and application of novel environmental friendly materials as well as natural mineral resources in environmental remediation; 3. Applications of various advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), especially heterogeneous photocatalysis for the degradation of organic pollutants and inactivation of pathogens in water and air. He has been published more than 200 peer-received professional papers (including 160 SCI papers) in reputation journals, such as ES&T and Water Res. He is also the holder of total 45 patents including 36 issued. He is the winner of National Natural Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars in China, and the excellent Young Scientist Award from many reputation Societies, like Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE) in 2011, Chinese Society for Mineralogy, Petrology and Geochemistry (Defen Hou Award) and Chinese Society for Environmental Sciences in 2010. Now, he is also served as editorial aboard of Environmental Geochemistry and Health (SCI) and Atmospheric pollution Research (SCI) as well as Journal of Agro-Environmental Science.
