Tan was invited to speak at the Southern Section Annual Conference in Nashville on September 20-21 and gave a brief summary of her current and past research on air pollution modelling. She talked about her previous study on the assessment of the cost and benefit in air quality control and introduced her current study on global deposition of nitrogen and sulfur.
