COP 27, Geopolitics, and Energy Transition

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


This was a two-hour lecture I was invited to deliver to the students at the Northwestern Polytechnical University in China. Their initial plan was to invite me to be Visiting Professor, to deliver the lecture and discuss about potential collaborations. But due to the rapid spread of the Covid cases in China at the time following the change of the government policy, I was unable to visit them in person and thus gave the lecture online. It was an enjoyable experience and they plan to continue and expand such collaborations in the future.
