The City Fix would like to welcome it’s newest blogger, Wei-Shiuen Ng. Wei-Shiuen is currently an Environmental Research Associate at the Tellus Institute in Boston, where she provides research and analytical support for Sustainable Communities and Corporate Redesign initiatives. Prior to joining Tellus, Wei-Shiuen was a Research Associate at EMBARQ, the World Resources Institute (WRI) Center for Sustainable Transport in Washington D.C., where she has gained experience in transport demand and energy consumption modeling, sustainable transport policy analysis, as well as urban transport project management in Asia. Her research areas were focused on the environmental and social consequences of motorization and mitigation measures, in addition to the development of transport emissions measurement tools.
An urbanite, who has lived in different cities across Asia, Europe and North America, Wei-Shiuen is interested in solving urban environmental problems, especially through the application of fiscal policies on transport demand management and innovative vehicle technology. In her spare time, she enjoys taking advanced vehicles for high speed test drives. Wei-Shiuen holds a Masters in Environmental Science from the Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, where she concentrated on energy and climate change economics and policy, and studied the economic impact of sea level rise. She received her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management from the University of York in the United Kingdom in 2001.
