My research explores how incentives of politicians, industries, and individuals shape environmental politics.  My research agenda includes three areas: 1) political pollution cycles, 2) environmental consequences of government policies, and 3) public opinion on the environment.

I believe interdisciplinary techniques can help us generate new data, reveal new patterns, and offer new insights into important questions.  Hence, my research integrates relevant techniques from political science, engineering, earth systems, computer science, and other disciplines to illuminate the problems of energy and the environment.
