Shunbo Lei

I am an assistant professor with the Chinese University of Hong Kong - Shenzhen. I received the B.Eng. degree in electrical engineering and automation from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, in 2013, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Hong Kong, in 2017. I was a visiting scholar at Argonne National Laboratory, USA, from 2015 to 2017, a postdoctoral researcher with the University of Hong Kong from 2017 to 2019, and a research fellow with the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor from 2019 to 2021. My research interests include power systems, resilience, grid-interactive efficient buildings, optimization and learning.

Power grid resilience is one of my primary research interests. A major part of my resilience research is on the utilization of spatial and temporal flexibility from mobile power sources and grid-interactive efficient buildings to enhance distribution grid survivability and recovery. I have led an IET The Journal of Engineering special issue on “Engineering techniques and technologies to enhance power system resilience.” I am now serving as the chair for IEEE PES SBLC Task Force on “Flexible Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings to enhance electric service resilience (FlexGEB).”

The Resilience Fellowship provides me with a great opportunity to work with researchers with the 4TU RE Centre to achieve collaborative accomplishments.

I was a Younge Fellow in the 4TU.DeSIRE programme.
