Dr Jing Meng took a position at University of Cambridge in January 2018. She was a Senior Research Associate in the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia (UEA) and a Research Fellow at Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. Her research focused on air pollution modelling, climate change and sustainable development pathway. She has a proven track record of high quality publications (over 20 articles) in international peer reviewed journals, such as Nature Climate Change, Proceedings of the Royal Society A, Environmental Science and Technology (ES&T), and Applied Energy.


Dr Yuan Li is a Senior Research Associate in colour and imaging science at University of East Anglia. She specializes in colour psychophysics methods (scaling and threshold estimation), psychophysical experimental design for colour perception and implementation, colour measurement and colour preference and its influencing factors from socioeconomic dimensions.


David Mendoza has graduated from the University of East Anglia He works as a Lecturer at Economics School of Mexico. He works on Flood Footprint Analysis: Method and Application. He specializes in input-output modeling in risk analyses. He was trained as an economist.


Dr Yang Xia has graduated from University of East Anglia, and works for SpringerNature. She worked on the disaster footprint framework to reveal environment-health-macroeconomic nexus for persistent disasters. She specialises in environmental input-output modelling, socioeconomic accounts of air pollution losses and heatwave related health impact.  



Yuli Shan is a Postgraduate Researcher (PhD student) at School of International Development, University of East Anglia, UK. Affiliate member in Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. He works on carbon emission accounts, low-carbon development analysis, as well as climate change economics. He manages the CEADs database. He received the master degree from Fudan University (China) in 2014, won the "Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad" in 2016.


Zhao Zeng is a Postgraduate Researcher in Climate Change and Flood Footprint at School of International Development, University of East Anglia, and an affiliate member at Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. She works on the flood footprint assessment (economic impact of natural disaster) and water footprint assessment.


Jiamin Ou is a Postgraduate Researcher at School of International Development, University of East Anglia. Before joining UEA, she obtained two Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering in South China University of Technology, and Risk Management Science in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her research interest is about the co-benefit assessment of air pollutant and greenhouse gas emission control in China, trying to explore their connections and evaluate the multiple effects of mitigation options.


Heran Zheng is a Postgraduate Researcher at School of International Development, University of East Anglia. His research interests are about the ecological economics, development study as well as application of Input-output model on the interdisciplinary areas. He has abundant interdisciplinary research experiences, particularly in institutional analysis, such as land us policy, environmental policy. Currently, he focuses on the how diet change in China effects the world in terms of environment and health.
