Xinyi Wang is in her second year of her master’s in environmental science and policy at Harris. Wang, who earned her bachelor’s in environmental science and economics from Peking University, worked with EPIC Postdoctoral Scholar Louis Preonas to investigate how farmers’ willingness to pay for higher pump efficiency is affected by electricity rate, subsidies, expected cost savings and other factors.

“My dream of alleviating climate change, and, specifically, limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius has led me to work and study in the energy and environmental fields,” Wang said. “Conducting research at EPIC as a Bartlett Fellow will further that dream by developing expertise.”
