I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment at Princeton University, working with Prof. Denise Mauzerall. My research interest is to understand the interactions among air quality, climate change, and energy systems using integrated modeling techniques to inform environmental policy-making globally.

I received my Ph.D. in Atmospheric Chemistry from MIT in 2019, advised by Prof. Noelle Selin. My dissertation examined the impacts of emission policies in China on air pollution and human health. I completed my undergraduate (Environmental Engineering) and master’s degree (Environmental Science and Engineering) from Tsinghua University in 2010 and 2013, where I studied the global carbon cycle and air pollution in China, advised by Prof. Yuxuan Wang.
