Profile

I received my BEng and MSc degrees in electrical engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in 2009 and 2011, respectively, and PhD degree in electrical machines from University of Sheffield, in 2015.

I was a research associate at University of Sheffield, from Jan 2016 to May 2018, before working as an advanced motor drive engineer in Dyson Automotive Research and Development Limited, UK, from July 2018 to Sep 2019.

Since Sep 2019, I have been a lecturer in EMD group, EEE department, University of Sheffield.

My current research interests include manufacturing-led innovation in electrical machines, multi-phase fault tolerant electrical machines for more electric aircraft, digital twin of electrical machine and drive, high-speed electrical machines for traction, low-cost electrical machines, and powertrain energy management for electric vehicles.
