Curriculum Vitae

I completed a double-degree Ph.D. from Beijing Normal University and Aalborg University in 2018, specializing in environmental economics. My doctoral research applies interdisciplinary methods to analyze the pollution sources, health impacts, psychological damage and external cost of air pollution in China.

My current research mainly focuses on exploring the economic and public health damages associated with environmental risks of energy consumption and human activities. The goal of my work is to enable policymakers to balance economic development and environmental sustainability.

Currently, I am working with Professor Dan Kammen at UC Berkeley on the health impacts of deep decarbonization in China, US and elsewhere in the world.
