Jing Meng


Dr. Jing Meng is a Senior Research Associate in the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia (UEA). Her research focuses on climate change mitigation,air pollution,  theories and modelling of environmental economics . She has a proven track record of high quality publications (over 20 articles) in international peer reviewed journals, such as Nature Climate Change, Proceddings of the Royal Society A, Environmental Science and Technology (ES&T), and Applied Energy. Since October 2016 she has been working on the “Integrated assessment of the emission-health-socioeconomics nexus and air pollution mitigation solutions and interventions in Beijing”’ (INHANCE) projects along with Prof. Dabo Guan at DEV and Steve Dorling at ENV .
