Su-Jung (Candace) is a Manager of Environmental Health and Safety at Center of High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) and a researcher in the Department of Work Environment at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. She received both her BS and MS in chemical engineering, and worked as a project and process engineer at a petrochemical plant for several years in Taiwan. At UMass Lowell she received her MS in management science (manufacturing) and her Doctor of Science in Occupational Hygiene and Cleaner Production. Dr. Tsai performed ground-breaking research to evaluate and control occupational exposures to engineered nanoparticles, she received Scholarship Award for her doctoral research. Her publications including the performance of laboratory fume hoods when handling nanopowders and the twin screw extrusion of nanocomposites are the first such papers in the peer-reviewed literature. Her paper was awarded as the best paper by the AIHA Lab Health and Safety Committee. She and Dr. Michael Ellenbecker are writing a new textbook for Wiley titled “Health and Safety Considerations for Working with Engineered Nanoparticles in Industry”.

As Chair of the  5th International Symposium of NanoEHS , she managed the call for papers and assembled the agenda.
