Ph.D. Student in Environmental Economics & Policy
James B. Duke Fellow
Duke University

Currently, as a second-year Ph.D. student at Duke University, I study in the University Program in Environmental Policy, supported by Nicholas School of the Environment and Sanford School of Public Policy.

I am broadly interested in environmental and energy economics,  environmental policy, and applied econometrics. My research topics cover air pollution, climate change, innovation and development, and environmental regulation. My recent research focuses on:

  • top-level design of carbon market, carbon pricing and its regulatory impact analysis;
  • the evidence-based relationship between environmental regulation, firms’ innovation, and their competitiveness;
  • the empirical study of air pollution and people’s defensive behavior.
