Winston Dang

Winston Dang (Chinese: ; pinyin: Chén Zhòngxìn; Pe?h-?e-j?: Tân Tiông-sìn; born 1943) is a Democratic Progressive Party politician in Taiwan.[1]


Dang did his undergraduate education at Taipei Medical University and then moved to the United States to pursue further education, successively earning an M.A. from Columbia University, a Ph.D. from the City University of New York, and a M.P.H. from the Harvard School of Public Health.[1]


Dang was appointed Minister for the Environment (heading the Environmental Protection Administration) by Chen Shui-bian after the 2004 elections, and renounced his U.S. citizenship to take up the position.[2][3] His work as minister earned him the nickname "the over-educated garbage man".[1] He served in the position until 2008, when he was succeeded by Stephen Shen.[4]
