Scientists Meet Scientists – Virtual TUM-IAS Wednesday Coffee Talk by TUM-IAS Alumna Prof. Jia Chen: "A new way of carbon monitoring: Munich Column Carbon Monitoring Network (MUCCnet)"


On June 16th, Rudolf Mößbauer Tenure Track Alumna Prof. Jia Chen, head of the Environmental Sensing and Modeling group at the TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will give a talk:"A new way of carbon monitoring: Munich Column Carbon Monitoring Network (MUCCnet)". (TUM Press Release)

Prof. Chen conducts research on topics relating to climate change and urban air pollution. She also develops sensors and mathematical models for the exact determination of greenhouse gas emissions and air quality parameters. The data generated can be used to developed new climate protection measures and to evaluate existing measures.

Last year Prof. Chen established in Munich the world's first permanent sensor network for the measurement of urban greenhouse gases, based on the differential column measurement method she developed. She is currently developing an intelligent sensor network for the determination of air quality parameters, for example regarding particulate matter and nitrogen oxides. She heads the UN project "German MEASURE", which investigates the methane emissions of major German cities.

Prof. Chen studied electrical engineering in Beijing and Karlsruhe, earning her doctorate at TUM in 2011. She then did postdoctoral work at Harvard University. Since 2015 she has been the head of the TUM Professorship for Environmental Sensing and Modeling and is an Associate at Harvard University. Prof. Chen is author or co-author of more than 150 publications and twelve patents.
