My Story

Tingting joined the National Drought Mitigation Center in 2017 as a Drought Policy & Impact Analyst focusing on the impact analysis and economic valuation of drought early warning and planning by sector, including the economic measure of both tangible and intangible costs and benefits of drought early warning and planning. Previously, she worked three years as an OIRSE Postdoc Fellow at U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Cincinnati). She went to University of Rhode Island where she received her Ph.D. in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. She has also worked as an assistant professor at Guangxi Normal University (Guilin, China) in the School of Economics and Management for three years. Her previous research integrates hydrological modeling, economic valuation methods, land use change forecasting, and optimization techniques to better understand the value of environment and ecosystem services and further to inform policy and decision-making. She looks forward to work collaboratively with the colleagues at National Drought Mitigation Center to evaluate the impact and value of United States Drought Monitor.
