Dr. E.C. Chan received his doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver in 2010, with focus in experimental and numerical combustion science. Since then, he has been working closely with major German and International OEMs and consultancies in the automotive sector for powertrain development projects. He is currently a Project Scientist at the IASS for the project group "Air Quality Modelling for Policy Advice". In particular, his work relates to developing high-resolution numerical simulation models for pollutant formation and dispersion at the street level.
