Resumes of professors:

 
      Yang CAO, professor, graduated from the Zhengzhou Grain College, and got master degree in Department of Grain and Oils Storage in 1986. He is the director of grain and oils storage group in Academy of State Administration of Grain (ASAG), the leader of Grain and Oils, and a supervisor of master graduate in Henan University of Technology. He has been mainly working in the research and promotion to the technology of green & ecological grain storage, such as low oxygen technology in the storage industry, inert dust (physical) insecticidal technology, storage pest controlling for Chinese farmers and grain industry pests management. He is one of expert group of “national engineering project of grain bumper harvest and high yield science and technology” in the 11th Five Year Plan. He is the peer reviewer of project proposals for the Cooperative Research Centre Program in 13th selection round, Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR) of Australia. He is also a peer reviewer of Journal of the Chinese Cereals and Oils Association. He is main participant of the project of “the research and development and integrated innovation of four techniques syncretism” which won the first prize of National Progress in Science and Technology Award.
 
      Dr. Zhongjie ZHANG, professor, graduated from China Agricultural University. He majors in agricultural products processing and storage engineering, and is postdoctor in the Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, China Academy of Sciences. Meantime, he is also a part-time professor in Jilin University and Henan University of Science and Technology. He is mainly engaged in theory research, development and application of technology on energy-saving ventilation, drying and environmental resources. He had hosted and participated in 20 provincial or above research projects. Furthermore, he had taken charge of accomplishing more than 70 construction design projects and more than 30 academic papers. Then he was a co-author of 3 works.
 
      Huiyi ZHAO, associate professor, received his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from Tsinghua University in 2004 and his second BSc degree in computer technology & application in 1998. Following graduation, he has been working at grain storage technology group of ASAG. His current research interests cover storage process, intellectualized control technology and rapid detection of grain and oil. Dr. ZHAO has hosted or taken part in 12 projects, including 4 10th and 11th Five-Year-Supporting Programs of Science & Technology Development of China, 3 Transformation Funds for Agricultural Science and Technology Achievements, 1 Equipment Upgrade and Renovation from the Ministry of Science and Technology and 4 other projects. During these projects, Dr. Zhao published 10 papers, took part in the establishment of 2 National Standards of China and applied for 5 patents. In addition, Dr. Zhao is one of the main editors of many books, which include Green & Ecological Technology for Grain Storage and so on.
