Eri Saikawa, Woodrow Wilson School

(2008-2010)

Eri Saikawa

Eri conducted interdisciplinary research that covered a broad range of topics from international relations and the politics of East Asia to atmospheric chemistry, combining them into an overall interest in the diffusion mechanism in environmental policymaking. Motivated by the impact of rapid motorization in developing countries linked to climate change, she focused on air pollution from the transport sector and various efforts to regulate it. This leads to analysis of how countries adopt standards and what the impacts are due to such adoption.
