Stephanie Siehr is a Visiting Faculty in the China Energy Group, Energy Technologies Area, of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Dr. Siehr holds an SB in Chemical Engineering from MIT, a research certificate in Chemical and Environmental Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, and an MS and PhD in Environmental Engineering and Policy from Stanford University. She joins LBNL from the University of San Francisco, where she is Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Director of the Environmental Management graduate program. Dr. Siehr’s work centers on energy-based solutions to multiple environmental problems—from local air pollution to global climate change—and combines engineering with tools from political economy and organizational theory. Her research spans China, Japan, the U.S. and California, examining the design and implementation of energy and environmental policy; emissions inventories and climate action plans; international cooperation; diffusion of clean technology and management practices; and the shift from risk assessment to sustainability. At LBNL, Dr. Siehr is working on industrial energy efficiency; energy and climate policy; target allocation; low-carbon cities; and strategies for saving energy and carbon through structural change of the economy.
Founded in 1988, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's China Energy Group works collaboratively with researchers in China and around the world to understand the dynamics of China's energy system. Our research focuses on the analysis of energy and related emissions trends, technologies, and policies on China's cities, buildings, appliances, industry, transportation, and power sectors to produce scientific data and analyses that informs researchers and policymakers in the U.S., China, and globally.
