I study Environmental Economics and Energy. My research interests include the relationship between energy consumption and economic development, energy consumption and carbon emissions in international trade and foreign direct investments and China's energy issues. I also keep an eye on the energy-related global governance issues. I've participated in writing and editing the first edition of China's Energy Outlook. My current work focuses on modeling the energy demand in China's residential sector with micro-level survey data.
