Dr Ying Xu
Ying Xu is an applied economist by training who joined the Centre for Global Food and Resources in 2016. Her previous work has been centred on risk analysis from both theoretical and empirical perspectives, which covers a wide range of topics including forest management under sequential natural disturbances, agricultural water use and irrigation technology adoption under climate risks, and wildlife conservation decisions under spatial-correlated risks. She is currently working on the climate and environmental impacts on health outcomes.
