“I am passionate about designing effective public policy to facilitate the transition to a sustainable energy future.”
Junling Huang joined the Berkeley Energy and Climate Institute (BECI) at UC Berkeley as a Philomathia Research Fellow in September 2016. He architects and directs the BECI-China Public Policy Project which seeks to address China’s sustainable energy future 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 U.S.-China relations. Junling has engaged with policymakers in the U.S. and China.
From 2017-2018, Junling was an associate in Applied Physics at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. From 2016-2017, he was an associate in Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program (STPP) at Kennedy School of Government. From 2014–2016, he was an STPP postdoctoral fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, advised by the then STPP director Prof. Venkatesh Narayanamurti. Junling Huang received his Ph.D. from School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University in 2014 and a B.S. from School of Physics, Peking University in 2009.
