Yang Guo

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow as well as a Schmidt Science Fellow working with Prof. Denise Mauzerall at Princeton University. My research focuses on industrial sustainability, energy decarbonization and infrastructure ecology, utilizing database development and environmental modeling. The research focus of my postdoctoral studies are: 1) Air quality and health benefits of decarbonizing China's industrial parks; and 2) Energy-water infrastructure symbiosis toward eco-transition.

I earned my BS and PhD degrees of environmental science and engineering at Tsinghua University in 2014 and 2019, with a second major of computer science. My PhD work has explored the pathways of decarbonizing China’s industrial parks by managing energy infrastructure, as well as optimizing regional industrial structure by reallocating resource and pollutant quotas among sectors.
