About Yong Zhong:

1) Originally trained as a physics teacher.

2) Taught thermodynamics for undergraduates at age of 21.

3) Got in 1991 from Monash University.

4) Made several original contributions to electron and nuclear spin resonance spectroscopy*.

5) Invited to write a chapter in a handbook for researchers in the field.

6) Irritated by the ABC’s interviews on climate change.

7) Started presenting talks on climate physics on Yong Tuition at Youtube in 2019.
