About me

I enjoy developing novel interdisciplinary research projects to study the science, policy, and sustainable strategies related to the environment.

My research experiences have been primarily focused on climate change, air pollution, and the energy system. I explore policies and strategies on these topics through empirical and theoretical modeling of the atmosphere, economics, health impacts, and energy transitions, etc. I have experience working with Integrated Assessment Models, Earth system model simulations, satellite retrievals, emission inventories, and epidemiological data. Currently, I work at Global Sustainable Finance at Morgan Stanley.

I grew up in Beijing, China, and have been trained in environmental science and economics from Peking University (BS & BA) and Duke University (PhD in Earth and Ocean Science & MEM in Energy Management). I accomplished the interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship at the Earth Institute/Climate School at Columbia University.
