BioSoh Young a PhD candidate in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. She completed her MA in International Policy Studies at Stanford, and BA in Economics and Statistics at Columbia University. Her research has been focused on bridging a knowledge gap among diverse groups in clean energy and catalyzing their behavior change to transition to a low-carbon economy.
Soh Young’s interdisciplinary works have drawn great attentions from and been funded by multiple leading institutions around the world. In 2016, she and her research team won a research prize on low-carbon investment evaluation from the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP) Finance Initiative. Her new academic project on a novel clean energy investment platform design received grants from the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy, Bank of America, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the Government of Canada. Her work has received extensive media coverage such as Stanford Engineering Magazine, WIRED Magazine, Indexology by S&P Dow Jones, and Sustainable Insight Capital Management, and been invited by multiple academic and industry communities.
Prior to her PhD career, Soh Young worked in the global/development banking industry – specifically, the Korea Development Bank and United Nations Development Programmes (UNDP) – for about 7 years. Her professional background in banking adds distinct value to her academic research in two ways: (1) she has an extensive understanding on investment decision-making process as well as policy supports; and (2) she grasps divergent objectives and practices of different types of investors, which range from commercial investment banks to public investors.
Soh Young actively promotes investment and policy issues through both education and community services. At Stanford, she has developed, organized and taught courses in relevant disciplines including political science, finance, and governance. She is also working with faculty members from the University of San Francisco (USF) to develop a new graduate course and a curriculum in energy policy and finance. She is one of the leading members of the initiative on climate change led by University College London (UCL). In 2017, Soh Young won a Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) award, which is hosted by the Department of Energy (DOE), the MIT Energy Initiative, and the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy.
