Jhih-Shyang Shih's research interests lie in integrated system analysis of environmental and resource policy and decisionmaking. Shih has extensive experience with modeling to study energy and environmental issues (air quality, risk, surface water and solid waste management, and has studied the costs of environmental protection, technology adoption, and renewable energy). Shih's recent research has focused on electric and thermal energy storage; sustainable infrastructure; integration of renewable and energy storage; bioenergy; water resources and water quality management; energy-water nexus; and integrated assessment of climate change, land use, air and water quality. Shih’s articles have appeared in such publications as the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the Environmental Science and Technology, the Review of Economics and Statistics, the Journal of Hazardous Materials, the Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management, the Journal of Air and Waste Management Association, the Journal of American Water Work Association and the European Journal of Operational Research.
Shih has received fellowships from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the US Environmental Protection Agency, and Carnegie Mellon University.
