[CV] [Google Scholar] [ResearchGate]

I am a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). My research interests include distributed control of networked systems, power system dynamics and stability, optimal power flow, and optimization of multi-energy systems. I received my B.Eng. in automation from Tsinghua University, and PhD in electrical engineering from California Institute of Technology, in 2010 and 2016, respectively.
