Lingjuan Wang-Li is a Professor of Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department at North Carolina State University. She began her studies in China with a B.S. in cotton engineering and earned her M.S. and Ph.D. from Texas A&M University in Biological and Agricultural Engineering. She specializes in air quality engineering and food animal production systems environmental control. Much of her research addresses various aspects of air emission and environmental control issues associated with animal feeding operations (AFOs). In addition to research, Dr. Wang-Li also teaches an undergraduate course in “Management of Animal Environment” and a graduate course in “Aerosol Science & Engineering”.
Dr. Wang-Li was appointed to the USDA Agricultural Air Quality Task Force (AAQTF) in 2013 and have served on the Task Force from 2013-2017 and 2021-2023. She was a recipient of a 2010 National Science Foundation (NSF) Career Award in Environmental Engineering. She served as the PI of Southeast Layer Operation for the National Air Emissions Monitoring Study (NAEMS) overseen by the USEPA under the “Air Quality Compliance for Animal Feeding Operations. Dr. Wang-Li is a member of American Society of Agricultural & Biological Engineers (ASABE), Association of Environmental Engineering & Science Professors (AEESP), Air & Waste Management Association (AWMA), International Commission of Agricultural and Biosystem Engineering (CIGR). She was the President (2009-2010) of Association of Overseas Chinese Agricultural, Biological and Food Engineers (AOCABFE), the Editor-in-Chief (2005-2008) of the CIGR Ejournal; Chair (2007-2008) of S1025 USDA Multi-State Research Committee on “Systems for Controlling Air Emissions and Indoor Environments of Poultry, Swine, and Dairy Facilities”.
