From November 2020, Baoxiao Liu has joined Institute of Environmental Sciences (CML) to pursue her doctoral degree with the predominate focus on repercussion assessment of environmental policy from the perspective of the nexus of natural resources and socio‐economic aspects.
Baoxiao Liu received her MSc (2013) in the major of Cartography and Geographic Information System from the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research (IGSNRR) in University of Chinese Academy of Sciences after being granted BSc (2009) in Spatial Informatics at Wuhan University.
During her MSc, Baoxiao specialized in ecological environment monitoring and simulation, spatio-temporal land use change analysis, grassland biomass projection by remote sensing and GIS technology. After graduation, Baoxiao had worked as a research assistant in National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation (NCSC) in China for four years, focusing on greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation policies and measures research, particularly in building GHG emission measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) mechanism at the national level.
From November 2020, she has joined Institute of Environmental Sciences (CML) to pursue her doctoral degree of Industrial Ecology.
The scope and intensity of humans‐environment interactions have increased dramatically. The surging level of global trade, which in its complexity of interconnections is not apparent, links local natural resources and management to telecoupled changes. The full environmental and socioeconomic impacts of political decisions remain largely invisible to policy‐makers due to the spatial and temporal separation.
Baoxiao's current research is repercussion assessment of environmental policy from the perspective of the nexus of natural resources and socio‐economic aspects. Her research will be trying to overcome a silo‐thinking pattern by observing, analyzing, and modeling indirect, unforeseen and delayed repercussions of environmental policies in a nexus of natural constraints and socioeconomic tradeoffs.
