I grew up in Beijing where I received my college education and worked as a policy specialist for 4 years at the Chinese Academy of Science. I came to the U.S. to pursue my graduate studies in early 90's of last century. After having been studying, working, and living in the U.S., most of the time in Delaware, for 17 years, I returned to Beijing working at NRDC Beijing Office in 2007.

I earned my Ph.D. in energy and environmental policy from the University of Delaware, an MBA in finance from Temple University, a M.S. in environmental policy from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a B.A. in mechanical engineering from Peking University.
