Helin Liu holds a Ph.D. in Land Economy (2009-2013, University of Cambridge, UK).
His research was mainly on the dynamics of the interactions between industrial activities and land use within the city realm by agent-based modelling. He has now joined the Integrated Assessment Project to examine the negotiation process among countries in terms of climate change policies. By marrying the integrated assessment models with a combination of network and agent-based models, he expects to figure out how public and private sector actors can be nudged towards implementing the policies presupposed in the Energy-Economy-Environment Model and Future Technology Transformation Model.
