The National Academy of Engineering elected University of Cincinnati alumnus Jiming Hao, PhD, as a foreign member to their esteemed body, citing his “leadership in the development and implementation of air pollution control theory, strategy, and technologies.”

The National Academy of Engineering is an independent, nonprofit institution composed of over 2,000 peer-elected members and foreign members. Founded in 1964, the institution seeks to “advance the well-being of the nation by promoting a vibrant engineering profession and by marshalling the expertise and insights of eminent engineers to provide independent advice to the federal government on matters involving engineering and technology.”

Current Academy members elect new members and foreign members based on their distinguished record as leaders in business, government and academia. Members have outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education, or to new and developing technological fields. 

Hao is professor and dean at the Institute of Environmental Science and Engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. He is an internationally renowned expert on air quality and air pollution control with research areas that include energy and the environment and vehicle admission control.

Hao received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and master’s degree in environmental engineering at Tsinghua University. In 1984, he received his PhD in environmental engineering from UC.
