    Purdue University. Jing works on issues at the interface between humankind
    and environment. Her research seeks to improve the understanding of the
    economic impacts of environmental changes and to better understand our
    ability to adapt to those impacts. Jing is specialized in using computational
    and statistical tools to analyze interactions between food production system,
    land and water. She has also worked across a spectrum of applied economic
    topics including economic damages of natural disasters, international trade,
    as well as health and nutrition. Her recent project investigates alternative
    polices to abate nitrogen loss exported to the Gulf of Mexico via the
    Mississippi river basin. She contributed to developing a fine-resolution
    simulation model to study local responses to socio-economic and physical stressors at various scales.
