Atmospheric and Thermal Environmental Engineering

We develop a state-of-the-art integrated assessment model that can simulate, economy, energy, food, agriculture, land-use, emissions, air pollution and climate. Our mode is interdiciplinary products which would have wide range of application field for global environmental problems.

Research Topics

Global and national energy economic model development

This theme develop energy-economic model and explore the future greenhouse gas emissions and energy. The main focus is in energy system and interaction with macroeconomy. The primarily research question is how to mitigate the climate change and what would be the obstacles and what would be the political solutions.

SDGs implications of climate change mitigation

Sustainable development goals (SDGs) have multi-dimensional target spaces. Climate change impacts and mitigation could potentially interact with SDGs. We demonstrate how non-climate SDG targets are related with climate change impacts and mitigation, which bring the picture of synergy and trade-off. Poverty, hunger and health would be the primary focus of our modeling but there would be beyond that.

Air pollution simulation and cobenefit of climate change mitigation

Air pollution is expected to mitigated by CO2 abatement. However, it is not clear how much the health benefit and the implications of the latest political situation. We use atmospheric chemistry model to explore the global air pollution condition with emissions information from the integrated assessment model.
