Dr. Jiang is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering. He has a background in public policy and environmental engineering. His main interest is to employ multi-disciplinary tools to inform the development of next-generation environmental technologies and policies. He draws from engineering and policy literature for his research, which has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the US Department of Agriculture, among others (Daqian Jiang | Research Group (wixsite.com)).
