With the Harvard China Project team, he has developed an integrated assessment framework for examining the impact of policies on Chinese energy use, air quality, health, and CO2 emissions which is described in 2013 book, Clearer Skies over China: Reconciling Air Quality, Climate and Economic Goals. Ho received his PhD in Economics from Harvard University in 1989 and taught at SUNY Buffalo. From 2012 to 2015, he was at the Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management writing on China's economic growth and using household surveys of energy consumption.
