I am a Postgraduate Research Associate in the Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) Program at Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs, Princeton University. I work with Professor Denise Mauzerall. I received my Ph.D. degree in Public Policy from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton and a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Peking University, China.
I use both quantitative (e.g. air quality modeling, bottom-up energy consumption models, health impact assessment) and qualitative (comparative case study) approaches to evaluate the air quality, climate, and industrial growth co-benefits of policies that facilitate China's low-carbon energy transition. In particular, I am interested in the penetration of renewable power sources (such as wind and solar photovoltaic) and battery energy storage systems in China's power system, as well as China's residential and building-related energy transitions.
