Plenary Speakers

We are pleased to announce our confirmed plenary speakers. Stay tuned – more speakers to be announced shortly!

Dr Lisa Emberson

Reader in Environmental Science
Centre Director Stockholm Environment Institute at York (SEI York)
Environment Department, University of York, United Kingdom

Main areas of expertise: Air pollution and climate change impacts on plant physiology, scaling to whole crop, tree and grassland productivity. Development of risk assessment methodologies for air quality guidelines to protect vegetation.

Her research focuses on developing eco-physiological modelling methods to understand the deposition and exchange of air pollutants in relation to C, N and water vapour cycling in forests, crops and grassland ecosystems. This research has helped develop risk assessment methods to define air quality guidelines for policy for the UNECE LRTAP ‘Critical Level’ air quality targets. She also advised the Malé Declaration on methods to control and prevent air pollution in South Asia. She was lead author on a number of global assessments (UNEPs Global Environment Outlook; UNECEs Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution; IASSAs Global Energy Assessment; UNEP/WMO Ozone and Black Carbon Assessment). Since 2012 she has been the Centre Director of SEIs York office.

PROFESSOR XAVIER QUEROL

jiming-haoResearch professor at the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA), in Barcelona, Spain. Research focussing on atmospheric sciences and environmental issues associated to power generation (mainly emissions of pollutants and recycling of wastes).

He has important contributions on atmospheric aerosols chemistry, especially in urban areas, and source apportionment, as well as on devising action plans and on the scientific evaluation of their effectiveness. He is leading or participating in numerous national and international research projects, produced around 500 SCI papers on environmental issues and supervised 27 PhD thesis. In 2014-2016 he included in the list of Highly Cited Researchers 2014 (1% most cited for subject fields and year of publication, http://highlycited.com/). He acted as advisor for air quality of several important city councils, regional governments, the Spanish Ministry of Environment (leading author of the Scientific Basis for the National Air Quality Plan) and DG Environment of the EC (II Position Paper on PM, contributor to different EC Guidance Documents, member of working groups on PM) as well as UNECE (vice-chairman of EMEP Scientific Bureau) and WHO (member of SAC of REVIHAAP and HRAPIE projects).
