Shangwei Liu

STEP PhD Student

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy (STEP) program at Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, and work with Professor Denise Mauzerall. The socioeconomic transitions in developing world in recent decades brings huge challenges and opportunities for sustainable development, and I am interested in understanding the environmental impact of socioeconomic activities based on data analysis to facilitate the development of sound energy and environmental policy.

Prior to coming to Princeton, I was an undergraduate student in the School of Environment at Beijing Normal University, working with Professor Xin Tian. My previous research focused on the impact on climate change mitigation of China’s current socioeconomic transitions and its policy implication by using environmental input-output analysis.
