I am becoming the Professor (Chair) in Control and Power Systems at University of Sheffield from March 2023. This new Chair appointment was through an open and competitive selection & interview process. I am glad to relocate my research group to this research-intensive university, very strong in engineering research, to continuously develop my academic career.

Meanwhile, I appreciate all the research support and friendly environment that my previous organisations Brunel University London Prof Gareth Taylor, Prof Geoff Rodgers have kindly offered me. I highly valued my industrial experience from National Grid as the GB Electricity Systems Operator, where I was lucky to be trained as a power system engineer by many technical experts in the field. My research journey started from The University of Manchester as a PhD student supervised by Prof Simon Rowland as well as obtaining the scholarship from National Grid.
