Dr. Juliana QiongWang Chiang (PhD, Yale University) is an affiliated researcher with the Liu Institute. Her area of research is environmental and natural resource economics. Her recent research projects examine strategic firm behavior and government responses to regulation and restructuring policies in China, particularly regarding the water sector and the power grid.

While at Notre Dame, she has taught ECON 40530, Environmental Economics. The course examines the economics of environmental problems. Through studying the role of the market and causes of externalities, students explore various mechanisms to correct the inefficiencies.
