Bin Cheng spent the past 3 years as an ORISE post-doc working with the EPA ORD’s Center for Environmental Measurement and Modeling. He worked on a variety of projects including urban-scale measurements and modeling fate and transport of PFAS across multimedia, introducing a new turbulent kinetic energy formulation for dry deposition modeling. Prior to that, he worked on several studies using local-scale dispersion models to assess PM10 from swine and poultry houses, assessing the dynamics of rural and urban atmospheric chemical conditions related to inorganic aerosols, etc. Cheng will be supporting a new NYSERDA award for applying the new ZAPPA model for New York State to address health co-benefits, as the state looks at various pathways for decarbonizing the energy sector, besides supporting couple of other ongoing projects. He earned his Ph.D. in biological and agricultural engineering with a minor in statistics from NCSU.
