Yueming (Lucy) Qiu is a Professor and Director of Research in the School of Public Policy at University of Maryland College Park. She also serves as the Vice President in Academic Affairs of the United States Association for Energy Economics. Her research group focuses on using big data with quasi-experimental and experimental methods to answer empirical questions related to the interactions among consumer behaviours, energy technologies, and incentives. Her research projects have been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Sloan Foundation, Department of Defense, Electric Power Research Institute, and Water Research Foundation. Dr. Qiu received her Ph.D. from Stanford University and B.S. from Tsinghua University. She has published in journals including Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Nature Energy, Nature Sustainability, and Nature Communications.
In this talk, Dr. Yueming Lucy Qiu will give a summary of the recent and work-in-progress research projects in her group. Her current research portfolio contains projects under four interrelated themes. She uses rich massive datasets such as smart meter data from individual consumers, web-scraped point-level high-resolution power outage data, and individual property-level housing transaction and characteristics data. The four research themes in this talk are: equity and distributional impact in the energy systems, consumer behaviors in response to energy technologies and interventions, evaluation of energy policy and program effectiveness and impacts, and intended and unintended consequences of energy infrastructure transitions.
