University of East Anglia

Senior Researcher

Dr. Zhifu Mi is a Senior Research Associate in the School of International Development, University of East Anglia (UEA) and a Senior Researcher in the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. His research is focused on climate change mitigation, energy policy, and climate change economic theories and modelling. He has authored over 20 articles in peer-reviewed journals such as Climatic Change, Environmental Research Letters, Energy Policy, and Applied Energy. He was invited to write a review article entitled Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) for Climate Change in Oxford Bibliographies which invites top scholars and researchers in the field to contribute. He has served as an author for Chapter 37 on International Policies and Actions to Tackle Climate Change in the Third National Assessment Report on Climate Change which is known as Chinese “IPCC Assessment Report”. He is a Guest editor for Journal of Cleaner Production (IF=4.959) and Mathematics and Computers in Simulation (IF=1.124), and a Subject Editor for Chinese Journal of Population, Resources and Environment.
