PhD research: Distributional Impacts on Carbon Mitigation Policies

Xinfang (Sophia) Wang

Postgraduate student

Xinfang (Sophia) has half a year research experience on High Emitting Groups in the UK in the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change research in the University of East Anglia, and half a year working experience as an energy analyze assistant in Energy Consulting company in the UK. She has completed an MSc in Finance and Economics with a Distinction award in the University of Southampton and a BSc in Statistics. She is also affiliate of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and has one year lecturing experience in Corporation Law.

This research will assess the potential for such segmentation to assist in the delivery of a more effective, efficient and equitable low carbon society. The aim of this research project is to develop a suite of tailored low-carbon policy options, focused on consumption and behaviour rather than the traditional and dominant production approach. In addition, the research will consider the role of high emission groups as potential ‘early adopters’ of technologies and norms which will then aid rapid diffusion through other groups.
