Researcher and lab coordinator
Dr. Yuli Shan is a Research Fellow at the Energy and Sustainability Research Institute Groningen, University of Groningen. He is also an affiliate member of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, and a board member of the Journal of Cleaner Production.

Yuli obtained a PhD in Climate Change Economics from the University of East Anglia (2018), an MSc in Social Development and Public Policy from Fudan University (2014), and a BSc in Statistics from Tianjin University of Finance and Economics (2012). He has conducted research at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (Germany), University of California, Irvine (USA), and University of Pannonia (Hungary) as a visiting fellow.

Yuli has won a dozen academic prizes including the Green Talents, which is awarded to 25 researchers in the field of sustainability globally. The jury especially valued the scientific expertise regarding his research on adaption and investigation of sustainable policies in cities. Yuli has been interviewed by internationally renowned media such as Reuters, Financial Times, and Xinhua net to discuss city-level sustainable development.

Yuli has published over 50 papers in high-impact journals, such as Science Advances, Nature Geoscience, and Nature Communications. His paper has been cited over 1700 times (h-index 17, i10-index 24), and 9 of them are ESI hot paper, 11 of them are ESI highly cited papers.

Yuli’s research focuses on emission accounts, climate change economics, and sustainable development. Yuli’s home country China is the world’s leading energy consumer and CO₂ emitter, considering factors such as rapid economic development, lifestyle change, and consumption growth. At the same time, China is playing a major role in global emission reduction and climate change mitigation. Yuli has developed a set of methods for composing CO₂ emissions inventories for China and its regions. His transparent and comparable emission data is uploaded to CEADs and available for free academic use. His study “City-level climate change mitigation in China” differentiates and generates low-carbon roadmaps for each city.

Furthermore, Yuli has engaged in spreading the low-carbon life to students and co-organizes a summer school with lectures and seminars on emission accounts and sustainable development. The summer school has successfully held since 2017 and involved over 200 students totally. He links his knowledge of sustainability to environmental science, economics, and management.
