I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) Program at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs of Princeton University, working with Professor Denise Mauzerall.

My research focuses on energy and environmental economics and policies in China. Some of my current projects and future goals are trying to address the following issues by establishing economic models:

  1. Macro-mechanisms of China’s national carbon cap-and-trade system in the context of ‘‘new normal” economy, as well as the micro-responses of enterprises, particularly on enterprises’ operation and investment decisions.
  2. Industrial transfer and electricity relocation in the context of regulating air pollution and rising renewable energy in China.
  3. Coal substitution pathway under the constraint of haze governance in China.
  4. Energy transition in rural China and its impacts on public health.

Prior to Princeton, I received a Ph.D. in Energy Economics at Xiamen University in China, advised by Professor Boqiang Lin; and spent three months working with Professor Jinyue Yan and several other scientists in Sweden, as a member of the International Clean Energy Talent (iCET) Program.
