Bio: XU Jianhua is an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Management, College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering and Institute for Global Health and Development at Peking University. She received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering and English at Dalian University of Technology, M.S. in Environmental Sciences at Peking University, and Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Xu joined Peking University in 2009 after working at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for one and a half years. Her research interests are environmental policy and management and risk regulation and governance. Dr. Xu has been doing research in the specific areas of regulation and governance and attitudes and behaviors in environmental and risk domains. In the area of regulation and governance, her focuses are on factors shaping the formation of regulations, the impacts of regulations, and policy design and evaluation; in the area of attitudes and behaviors, her focuses are on factors influencing environmental attitudes and behaviors, designing and evaluating policies driving the change in environmental attitudes and behaviors, and risk perception and communication.
