23rd International Transport and Air Pollution Conference 15-17 May 2019, Thessaloniki, Greece

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Allen L. Robinson

Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor and Head, Department of Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Allen L. Robinson is the Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor and Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.  His research examines the impact of emissions from energy systems on air quality and climate.  Focus areas include the atmospheric transformation of particulate matter emissions from motor vehicles and other combustion sources; methane emissions from the natural gas system; and high-spatial-resolution estimates of human exposure to support health analyses.  Dr. Robinson has authored more than 170 papers in peer-reviewed literature and given numerous invited talks and lectures.  He currently serves as the director of the EPA-supported Center for Air, Climate, and Energy Solutions (CACES), a multi-institution research center focused on creating a cleaner, healthier environment.  He is a member of the Health Effects Institute’s Research Committee.  Dr. Robinson is a fellow in American Association of Aerosol Research and received the American Geophysical Union ASCENT Award.  He holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Stanford University, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.

Dr.-Ing. Stephan Neugebauer

BMW, Chairman of European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC)
Stephan Neugebauer is Director Global Research Cooperation at BMW Group and Chairman of European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC) since 2015.

He completed his university studies in mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich. He was a scholarship holder of Hanns-Seidel-Foundation. After this, while being research assistant at the “Institute of Internal Combustion Engines and Vehicles”, he completed his doctorate by obtaining the title of Dr.-Ing..

Stephan Neugebauer started at BMW in the diesel engine development department in Steyr (Austria). In 1998, he returned to Munich in different functions in the development of BMW Gasoline Engines.

In 2005, he was transferred to the total vehicle development, taking over a new function as Head of the Energy Management Department and later as Head of the Thermal Management Department.

From 2012 to 2015, Stephan Neugebauer was Head of Vehicle Project, current BMW 3 series and 4 series.

Dr.Ye Wu

Professor and Associate Dean, School of Environment, Tsinghua University
Dr. Ye Wu is the full Professor and Associate Dean of School of Environment, Tsinghua University.

Previously, he served as a vehicle/fuel systems analyst in DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory’s Center for Transportation Research between 2002 and 2007.

His major research areas include:

1) evaluation of life-cycle energy and environmental impacts of advanced vehicle technologies and alternative fuels; and

2) analysis of characteristics of vehicular emissions and development of control planning of vehicle emission pollution.

Dr. Wu is the principal investigator for developing the big-data platforms in China for green transportation and regional/urban vehicle emission control and planning. So far he has published more than 100 papers and served as the leading author for more than 10 software patents. He holds a bachelor degree and a Ph.D. degree both in environmental engineering from Tsinghua University.
