Research Area

My main research question is how to achieve sustainable human development. I recently have an interest in applications of Environmentally Extended Input-Output (EEIO) analysis for the quantification of the environmental, economic and social impacts. My current research topic is: City-scale Carbon Footprint accounting and decarbonisation policy analysis.
