“I am passionate about designing effective public policy to facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy.”
Junling Huang joined UC Berkeley as a Philomathia Fellow in September 2016, after completing his postdoctoral study at Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.
At UC Berkeley, Junling is a team member at the Joint Research Center on Energy and Climate Change. His research interests include China’s energy and climate policy, China’s science and technology policy, and China’s governance.
Junling received a Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences from John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University in 2014. His thesis research investigated the prospects for wind in a climate-friendly energy future.He earned a B.S. from School of Physics, Peking University in 2009.
