Personal profile

Research profile

I received my B.Eng. degree from Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China in 2009. After that, I spent two years in Nanjing, China and completed my Master study (enrolled in a Master-Doctoral postgraduate program) at Southeast University. This stimulated my interest in power electronics and then drove me to continue my exploration, which was in Denmark. I worked with Prof. Frede Blaabjerg and obtained my Ph.D. degree from Aalborg University (AAU) in 2014. Currently, I am with the Department of Energy Technology, AAU as an Associate Professor. I have been focusing on

  • Power electronics (design, analysis, and control)
  • Renewable energy systems, particularly photovoltaic systems
  • Reliability in power electronics and systems (design for reliability)

In the above areas, I have authored and co-authored more than 100 journals and conference papers within the last several years. This includes two books - Periodic Control of Power Electronic Converters and Advances in Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Power Conversion Systems. In 2018, I received the IET Premium Award (Best Paper) in Renewable Power Generation, and I was also the recipient of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics' Outstanding Reviewers Award in 2018.

I am a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). I am also a Member of the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS), the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS), and the IEEE Power and Energy Society. I served as a Guest Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (JESTPE) and a Guest Editor of Applied Sciences. Currently, I am an Associate Editor for the IEEE JESTPE, the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, the CPSS Transactions on Power Electronics and Applications, and the IET Electronics Letters. I am also a Subject Editor (Solar Photovoltaic Systems, including MPPT) of the IET Renewable Power Generation, an Editor for the Mathematical Problems in Engineering, and a Section Editor of the BMC Energy. In addition, I am now serving as the Chair of the IEEE Denmark Section Executive Committee (2019-2020).

I am now looking for prospective Ph.D. students, research assistants, and postdoc fellows, who have the same interest and visions to work with me. More importantly, those who are persistent in Driving a Green Future with Power Electronics are very welcome to contact me.
