Curriculum Vitae



Comprehensive national accounting, energy economics, climate change

·        National accouting on input-output survey, accounting and analysis at National Bureau of Statistics of China since 1995.

·        Study on environmental and development economics since 2004 and PhD research on accounting for the income arising from nonrenewable resources since 2006 at the University of Oslo.

·        CGE modeling and analysis conducted in China since 1998 and in Norway since 2004, on emissions to air from fossil fuel use in China and effects on poverty and net carbon sequestration from alternative ownership to a CDM tree planting project in Tanzania.

·        Macroeconomic modeling and analysis in research projects related to climate change issues at CICERO since 2009 (the CGE model: GRACE).

·        Research on rebound effects of energy efficiency improvement, one of the key measures commonly suggested for climate change mitigation, since 2005.
