Maria Jesus Herrerias is Lecturer in Energy Economics at the Department of Economics at the University of Birmingham. She is an expert on Chinese studies based on economic growth, international trade and regional development. Since 2010, she has extended her research to energy economics.

My research interest relies in the intersection of energy economics, international economics, sustainable development and China. More specific topics might include (but not limited to) climate change, energy transportation, energy finance, renewable energy, energy access, energy efficiency, water-energy nexus. Other areas of knowledge of my interest are international trade, FDI, regional inequality, health and poverty. Her main works have been published in China and World Economy, Economics of Transition, Empirical Economics, Economic Modelling, Papers in Regional Science, Annals of Regional Science, Energy Policy, Applied Energy, Energy Journal, Energy Economics, Regional Studies, Journal of Policy Modelling, Pacific Economic Review and China Economic Review. She has presented her works in conferences such as the Royal Economics Society, the Chinese Economic Association (UK), the European Trade Study Group, among others, and has received invitations to participate in conferences including the Asian Economic Panel in Tokyo in 2011.

I accept PhD students that share my research interests.

Other interests include: Policy aspects, engagement and academic consultancy.
