I am Yuli Shan I'm from School of International Development and the Tyndall Centre for climate change research and my research is about climate change economics and China's emission accounts.
Why is your research important?
China is now the leading the world's leading energy consumer and CO2 emitter. If we want to reduce its emissions we must know exactly how much it emits every year, so my research is to calculate the emissions for the past 10 to 20 years.
What could your research mean in the real world?
It is closely related to the government policy-making. My research my data will provide the basic information for them to decide how to reduce China's emission.
What fascinates you about this research area?
I also think the fascinating part is it is closely related to the policy-making, I can really do something to help to improve China's environmental conditions as well as the global environment.
What has been your favourite moment so far?
After I came to UEA, I have published a few papers and my work is awarded by the Chinese government as one of the outstanding PhD students abroad. I have just got the certificate from London last week and I think this may be one of my favourite things here.
