Shanshan Zhang, Scientific editor, One Earth


Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth ignited Shanshan’s concern over environmental issues. After pursuing an MSc in environmental economics and management and a PhD in energy economics at Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet, Uppsala, Sweden, she became an assistant professor specializing in energy and climate policy at Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China. Shanshan’s ever-growing interest in socio-climate topics and a desire to promote transformative studies to address Earth’s most pressing challenges guided her to an editorial career with One Earth. With a background deeply rooted in social science, she appreciates the importance of societal behavior and recognizes the value of cross-disciplinary research when seeking co-benefits from environmental, economic, and social development.
