Personal profile

Personal information

Shutong He is a PhD student in the department of Environmental Economics of the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. She has a research master in Environmental Management and Economics from Nankai University, during which her study and research focused mainly on the influencing factors of CO2 emissions from China’s electricity sector.

Shutong is currently working on the PhD project at IVM. In this project, she will use the insights from behavioural economics and environmental psychology to investigate how non-price measures can contribute to higher levels of energy-efficiency investment and energy conservation behaviour of urban households in China. Data of this project will be collected by household survey and laboratory experiments conducted in China and Europe, in order to study both the self-factors and factors related to cultural context.
