Chien-shih Huang is a postdoctoral scholars coming from Florida State University. His main research interest is to investigate the antecedents and implications of governmental responsiveness to environmental issues at the subnational level by using social network analysis and experimental design. Specifically, he wants to address two major questions: (a) why some state and local governments are more likely to embrace proactive actions on combating and adapt to climate change than others, and how this pattern evolves over time; (b) why some green policy programs are perceived as more favorable and legitimate for the public. As a postdoctoral fellow, He is working on the project related to sea-level rise and flood insurance purchase.
