Yang is an environmental engineer with strong policy interests. During his PhD, he explored options for the decarbonization of energy infrastructure for China’s many industrial parks and modeled the economic and environmental benefits of greenhouse gas mitigation measures. As a Schmidt Science Fellow, Yang plans to explore the benefits of linking energy and water infrastructure by harnessing the sludge and treated water from wastewater treatment plants as alternative fuel and unconventional water source for thermal power plants.
