Prof. Dr. Lei Liu
I am a public policy researcher with focus on Energy, Environmental, and Natural Resources issues.
Currently, I am an associate professor at the School of Public Administration of Sichuan University, China . I hold a Doctor’s degree from Peking University (Jul. 2011) and a Bachelor's degree from Wuhan University (Jul. 2005) in China, both in Environmental Science. I was a Jean-Monnet postdoctoral fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (Climate Governance research strand) of European University Institute (Sep. 2013- Sep. 2014), and also a visiting Ph.D. student of the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis at Indiana University in the US (Sep. 2009- Sep. 2010), under the direction of Dr. Elinor Ostrom (Deceased, 2009 Nobel laureate in Economics).
Being an interdisciplinary and problem-oriented researcher, I have broad interests in exploring the social, economic, and political perspective of environmental governance at local and global level.
When people ask me if I am an Economist or Political Scientist or some others, I would like to label myself as an Environmentalist and hope what I am doing will contribute to the sustainable future of the global community.
