Minghao Qiu named Martin Fellow by the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative
IDSS congratulates Social & Engineering Systems (SES) PhD student Minghao Qiu, who has been named a Martin Fellow by the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative.
The Martin Family Society of Fellows for Sustainability is a community of MIT doctoral students pursuing sustainability research in a wide array of fields and topics. Each year, approximately ten outstanding students are selected to receive one academic year of fellowship support thanks to a generous gift from the family of Lee and Geraldine Martin. Martin Fellows participate in a lively community of students and alumni dedicated to advancing environmental and social sustainability.
Minghao’s broad research interests are in the field of environmental policies with a focus on air pollution and climate change. His current research examines the real-world impacts of energy and environmental policies on emissions, air quality and human health, with applied econometric and atmospheric chemistry models.
During his PhD, Minghao has focused on a wide range of policy topics in different regions, including industrial energy policy in China, renewable policy in the US and vehicles emissions in Europe. In particular, Minghao is interested in understanding the real-world trade-offs and synergies of addressing multiple sustainability challenges with public policies and how different policies disproportionally influence different regions and population groups.
