Sonia Yeh

Full Professor at Physical Resource Theory

Dr. Sonia Yeh is Professor in Transport and Energy Systems in the Department of Space, Earth and Environment. Her expertise is in energy economics and energy system modeling, alternative transportation fuels, sustainability standards, technological change, and consumer behavior and mobility. Throughout her work, she has advised and worked broadly with U.S. state and international advisers, policymakers, a wide range of stakeholder groups and academic researchers in developing climate policies toward reducing the environmental impacts and GHG emissions from transport. She served as Fulbright Distinguished Chair Professor in Alternative Energy Technology in 2016-2017 and received Håkan Frisinger Award by Volvo Research and Educational Foundations in 2019. She is an adjunct professor at the Department of Engineering and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University and a Senior Editor for Energy Policy journal since 2018.

Dr. Yeh has worked extensively with international researchers, stakeholder groups, and governance bodies and regularly advises, collaborates and provides inputs to international organisations including the International Energy Agency (IEA), the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conferences of the Parties (UNFCCC COP)(working with national and local governments developing tools to develop transport strategies for the Nationally Determined Contributions NDCs), International Transport Forum-OECD, the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank, etc. Dr. Yeh funded and co-leads the International Transportation Energy Modeling (ITEM) project https://transportenergy.org, participated by academic institutions, international and national energy agencies, major oil companies, and NGOs coordinating research on future scenarios, big data and research needs on EVs, MaaS, and policy needs to promote low carbon transitions in transport. She is a contributing author of Transport chapter in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report.
