IIASA models, tools, and data are developed in collaboration with partners to tackle challenges at global, regional, national, and sub-national levels.
Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Shaohui Zhang is a guest research scholar in the Pollution Management (PM) research group of the IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment (ECE) program, and an associate professor at Beihang University (BUAA) in China.
His research interests focus on the GAINS and MESSAGEix integrated assessment models, policy assessment for energy, climate, and environmental pollution, as well as cost-benefit analysis.
Dr. Zhang received his PhD from the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University, the Netherlands, following the completion of an MSc at Zhengzhou University, China. Dr. Zhang first visited IIASA in 2013, as a research assistant in the IIASA Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases (AIR) Program. He returned to the Institute in November 2016, as an IIASA postdoctoral research scholar with both the AIR and Energy (ENE) programs at IIASA.
