Dear all,

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Florida International University is looking for three PhD students for the Spring of 2019 (January 2019). The students will work on a NSF-funded project related to smart and green technologies for flood control. The ideal students need to have an outstanding experience in flood simulation (1D and 2D) and watershed-scale hydrological modeling. Experience with forecast simulation modeling (e.g., Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts (QPF))  and global optimization (e.g., GA, pattern search) is a plus.

 

Please send your CV, GRE and TOEFL (if applicable) scores, brief statement of your academic accomplishments, list of publications to Dr. Arturo S. Leon (arleon@fiu.edu) by August 15 of 2018.

 

Best regards,

Arturo S. Leon

Title: Implementing energy and environmental policies in China

Speaker: Prof. Yuan Xu, Department of Geography and Resource Management, Chinese University of Hong Kong

Date: Wednesday, 14 March

Time: 4 PM (tea/coffee at 3:45 PM)

Location: Divecha Centre Auditorium, 2nd Floor, CAOS Building, Indian Institute of Science

Abstract:

China is facing numerous energy and environmental problems with unprecedented scales and urgency. On the one hand, her weak rule of law often results in ineffective policy enforcement and prevalent non-compliance, which is one key reason for the unacceptable energy-related environmental crises. On the other hand, the country seems to be very capable of implementing other policies to rapidly improve energy efficiency, install pollution control facilities, and develop renewable energy. This presentation explores several theories to explain China’s failures and successes in implementing various energy and environmental policies (such as goals, standards, emission trading, and voluntary agreements) for multiple purposes (including pollution control, shale gas development, energy efficiency, renewables and black carbon mitigation). The understanding could help to make future implementation more effective and pertinent to different situations.

Bio:

Prof. Yuan Xu is an associate professor in the Department of Geography and Resource Management and leads the Environmental Policy and Governance Programme in the Institute of Environment, Energy and Sustainability, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research centers on energy and environmental policies and strategies, especially on their implementation as well as related technological innovation and industrial development. Before joining CUHK in August 2010, Prof. Xu received a Ph.D. degree in public policy from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University and was a postdoctoral research associate in the Industrial Performance Center, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He also holds an M.S. degree in climatology, a B.S. degree in atmospheric sciences and a bachelor's degree in economics, all from Peking University.

Title: Fixing China’s SO2 pollution

Speaker: Prof. Yuan Xu, Department of Geography and Resource Management, Chinese University of Hong Kong

Date: Monday, 12 March

Time: 4 PM (tea/coffee at 3:45 PM)

Location: Divecha Centre Auditorium, 2nd Floor, CAOS Building, Indian Institute of Science

Abstract:

In China’s infamous air pollution, one particularly notorious and difficult pollutant is SO2. Coal is the primary contributor, while China accounts for nearly half of global consumption. This presentation aims to systematically analyze how China has been trying, losing and gaining grounds to solve this complicated governance and industrial problem in the past two decades. The motivation for its solution will be examined against the background of China’s lack of democracy. Major policies will be introduced and their implementation analyzed. Because China has not established sound rule of law and courts are rarely visible for environmental protection, this presentation will explain policy implementation through exploring the relationships between the central and local governments as well as between governments and polluters. Furthermore, the massive demand for SO2 removal facilities pose another big challenge to their supply. The establishment of the new environmental industry will be investigated.
