Staff members with discipline Geosciences, Multidisciplinary

Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.

Researcher and lab coordinator
Dr. Yuli Shan is a Faculty 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 is a Green Talents awardee in 2018 and also wins the “Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad” in 2016. He has published over 40 papers in high-impact journals, such as Science Advances, Nature Geoscience, and Nature Communications. His paper has been cited over 1200 times (h-index 15, i10-index 19), 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-organises a summer school with lectures and seminars on emission accounts and carbon footprint calculation in collaboration with the Applied Energy journal. He links his knowledge of sustainability to environmental science, economics, and management.
