Zihong Chen


I am a PhD student in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds. I am interested in investigating the economic issues associated with climate change and carbon neutrality using quantitative research techniques.

I worked as a research assistant at the Energy Policy Research Centre, China Energy Research Society during my Master's degree, researching China's new power system and energy transition policy.

I completed a Master's degree in Economics from Beijing Normal University in 2023, focusing on China's carbon emission trading market, and completed a Bachelor's degree in Economics from Northwest University of Political Science and Law in 2020.
