Dr Daoping Wang
Lecturer in Risk, Environment and Society
Daoping is a dedicated researcher with a keen interest in the coupled natural and human systems and climate change adaptation analysis. He focuses on the critical intersections of risk, environment, and society. Before becoming part of the King's community, he concentrated his research efforts on applying artificial intelligence techniques to assess business risks stemming from climate change while at Cambridge. Daoping also holds the position of Hoffmann Fellow for the Fourth Industrial Evolution of the World Economic Forum.
- Climate change risk analysis based on economic theory and AI techniques
- Complex interactions of climate change, human activities, and the global economy
- Economics of disasters
- Climate change adaptation strategy and policies
Daoping's research broadly focuses on exploring how climate risks affect our socioeconomic system, and in developing ways to build resilience and adapt to climate change. Specifically, Daoping's research focuses on investigating how climate shocks propagate in spatial economic networks and generate both direct and indirect consequences, what the opportunities and challenges in building resilient urban systems are, and how policies can make a difference. His research combines dynamic general equilibrium models, mathematical programming, AI techniques, game theory, and self-developed risk analysis models to conduct quantitative analysis of these topics.
