I'm a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Dr Thomas Morstyn. My PhD research topic is forecasting the flexibility of aggregated DERs in a distribution grid.

I received a BEng degree in Electrical engineering and its automation from North China Electric Power University in 2020 (GPA: 90.63/100), and an MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh in 2021 (GPA: 80.4/100).

My research interests include the application of data-driven and optimisation methods in smart grids.
