“To have the opportunity to serve on PCAST is an immense honor, one I could not have imagined decades ago when I came to the United States from Hong Kong for college,” Fung said. “I am a proud product of the U.S. education and research environment, and I hope my work on the carbon and climate problem, as well as my personal experience as a foreign student and immigrant, can contribute to President Biden’s agenda on climate change as well as to broadening participation in STEM education across the country.”

Congratulations to EPS Professor Inez Fung on her appointment to President Biden's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST).  We are excited to have Professor Fung's experience and insight on the council!
