I joined the EPG in October, 2016. My research interest is in power system modeling and optimization at the grid level. As a start, I will be focusing on distributed energy resources, both existing and under-development, and identifying both the technical and economic impact of such resources on the local scale. The next step will be to develop a model from the grid's perspetive that predicts and quantifies the value of individual distributed energy systems.
I received my BS degree in Energy Engineering from Zhejiang University, China, and MS degree in Atmosphere/Energy, Civil Engineering from Stanford University. After I finished my MS program, I spent two years working in the industry, first as an energy analyst at Integral Group, a building MEP consulting firm, and then as a research analyst working on microgrids in the Open Innovation office of EDF located in the Bay Area in California.
