Name: Sasho Gligorovski
Title:  Professor
Phone:  ++86 2085291497

Sasho Gligorovski is a Full Professor at Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry (GIG), Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), China. Dr. Gligorovski obtained his Ph.D. at TROPOS (Germany) in 2005, followed by one-year postdoc at IRCELYON (France). From 2006 to 2017, he served as an Assistant Professor and later an Associate Professor at Aix Marseille University, France. 
The ultimate goal of his research is to provide quantitative information that can be used in photochemical models (regional and global scale) to better understand the air quality and climate change issues. He has published more than 85 peer-reviewed papers, which have received more than 3400 citations with an h-index of 30 (Google Scholar). He published some landmark papers in prestigious journals such as Science, PNAS, Science Advances, Chemical Reviews, Environmental Science and Technology (16 papers), and Applied Catalysis B: Environmental (2 papers), among the others. He has also published more than 15 conference proceedings and he has presented over 80 conference presentations including 11 as invited speaker and one as keynote speaker at the top geophysical and geochemistry conferences. He has received prestigious fellowships and awards including best project award nominated by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, France, and three times recipient of the visiting fellowship from the European Commission (EC).

Research Interests:
His research interest aims to elucidate the kinetics, mechanisms, and photochemistry of multiphase and heterogeneous reactions occurring at environmental surfaces (e.g., aerosol, urban grime, ocean), and on indoor surfaces.
