Ping Jing has been an Assistant Professor at Loyola’s Institute of Environmental Sustainability since August 2013. Her research interests include the effect of climate change on air pollution, the impact of ground-level ozone on plants, and volatile organic compounds in the Chicago region and their relationship with ozone under the additional stresses of future climate change. She also teaches a summer course, Environmental Sustainability in China, at the Beijing Center.

She joined Loyola University Chicago in August 2009 as a full-time lecturer. Prior to that, she was a physical scientist supporting the calibration plan of the next-generation weather satellite GOES-R at the Center for Satellite Applications and Research of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration from 2008 to 2009. Her doctoral research at the Georgia Institute of Technology between 1999 and 2004 investigated the exchange of ozone between the stratosphere and the troposphere. During her postdoctoral fellowship at Georgia Tech between 2004 and 2006, she studied ozone variations in the upper troposphere over the United States.
