“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 Research 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, he directs the BECI-China Project which seeks to address China’s energy and climate challenges by bringing science and technology into the design of public policy. He also supports and advises the development of the Berkeley-Tsinghua Joint Research Center on Energy and Climate Change and is responsible for designing the strategic plan of the center’s research activities. 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.
