Visiting Fellow
I am a scholar in the field of environment management, and industrial ecology, applying sustainability science knowledge to develop sustainable and low-carbon cities. I dream to contribute to the field of industrial and urban symbiosis through optimizing the network, and apply them into the planning of sustainable urban development.
