To accompany this joint PhD agreement, a QUT-JNU joint Laboratory for Air Quality Science and Management was also established with Professor Ristovski as the Laboratory Director. This is an extension of the excellent collaborative work that was initiated by Dr Congrong He from the ILAQH and Professor Boguang Wang from the JNU. The joint laboratory has been given a large space at the Institute for Environmental and Climate Research, JNU. QUT staff, Professor Zoran Ristovski and Dr Congrong He, together with JNU staff, Professor Hao Wang (ILAQH alumni) and Professor Boguang Wang, have been involved in the design of the new laboratory space. This space will be a major boost for the PhD students involved in the joint PhD program. The joint PhD agreement has attracted so far 2 PhD students with 3 more waiting to start in September 2019. A joint masters agreement is in preparation.
