    Joanna Lewis is an assistant professor of Science, Technology and International Affairs (STIA) at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. Her research examines technology acquisition and innovation strategies for energy leapfrogging, drawing from cases of renewable energy development in the emerging economies. Focused primarily on China, her work combines approaches from energy systems and policy analysis, global environmental politics, and technology transfer and innovation studies. Current projects include an examination of US-China cross border technology innovation in clean energy research and development, the evolving nature of US-China relations on energy and climate, China’s climate change mitigation and adaptation options and approaches, and an analysis of the implications of emerging international renewable energy trade conflicts.
