Shangwei Liu

STEP PhD Student

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy (STEP) program at Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. I am working with Professor Denise Mauzerall. My current research focuses on facilitating the clean heating transition in northern China by building energy efficiency improvement and cross-sectoral strategies. I have a broad range of interests in climate policy, clean energy technologies and political economy. I am also co-hosting a Chinese podcast about climate policies. Prior to coming to Princeton, I obtained an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science from the School of Environment at Beijing Normal University.
