CCR IAM Staff: Xiaolin Ren, Project Scientist I
Xiaolin Ren is a Project Scientist I in the Integrated Assessment Modeling group within the Climate & Global Dynamics Division at NCAR. After she got her Master's degree in Environmental Engineering, she started to pursue my PhD in environmental economics. During her PhD training, she had worked on several projects, including optimal strategy design, survey data analysis, survey design, new product market share prediction, and policy evaluation. After years of study, her interests have converged on the interaction between climate change and economic development.
Currently at NCAR, she is working with the PET model, the socio-economic model in the integrated assessment model, to evaluate the relationship between economic development and greenhouse gas emissions.
