International environmental cooperation and climate change laws diffusion: A network analysis.
My research aims to apply methods from network science and data science to study a wide range of problems related to global environmental cooperation, climate change and international relations.
Specifically, my first project is to apply network theory to examine the emerging structure of global environmental cooperation through treaties, with the aim to understand the influence of network structure on relationships between signatory countries. In addition, I am working on a project on policy diffusion. In this project, we aim to use diffusion models to reveal the diffusion patterns of climate change laws across countries.
