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 Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases (AIR) Program at IIASA and an associate professor at Beihang Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research and School of Economics and Management at Beihang University (BUAA) in China.
His research interests focus on understanding of key issues regarding energy resource efficiency, energy transitions, climate change, air pollution, industrial and technological development, technology assessment and policy evaluation, synergies between policies, nexus assessment, and multiple benefits/co-benefits of energy efficiency.
Dr. Zhang received his PhD from the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University, the Netherlands, following the completion of an MSc in Environmental Science from Zhengzhou University, China. During his PhD studies, he worked on subjects related to industrial energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emission reduction, air quality and public health, with a focus on the cement and iron and steel industries in China at various scales. Dr. Zhang first visited IIASA in 2013, as a research assistant in the IIASA AIR program. He returned to the Institute in November 2016, as an IIASA postdoctoral research scholar with both the Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases (AIR) and Energy (ENE) programs at IIASA.
