Daniel Han is a Public Policy Ph.D. student from Kansas at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Coming directly from his undergraduate studies, he graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in Economics, a BA in Mathematics, and a minor in statistics.
Interested in energy and environmental policy, Daniel’s research interests include biofuel implementation in mitigating climate change, for example, biochar, a black carbon produced from biomass sources. He also studies water, soil, and crop residue usage within agricultural policy, policy solutions to help transition from fossil fuels, energy poverty and how to facilitate energy access to poorer regions of the world, facing a greater opportunity cost with regards to cheaper biomass and fossil fuels.
Daniel is also an EPPSA Graduate Fellow.
