Profile


Haiwang Zhong received his B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from Tsinghua University, China in 2008 and 2013 respectively. He is currently working as a Research Associate at Department of Electrical Engineering, Tsinghua University. His research interests include: smart grid, power system operations, demand response, demand dispatch, and renewable energy integration.

Recently, he received the 2014 ProSPER.Net-Scopus Young Scientist Award in Tokyo, Japan. And he is awarded as the principal investigator (PI) for two projects, including 1 project from National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and 1 project from Postdoctoral Science Foundation of China. He visited Texas A&M University during 2011 and 2012.

Currently, he is visiting Prof. Saifur Rahman at Virginia Tech, working on the co-optimization of energy storage and demand response in managing integration of large scale renewable energy. He is the reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, International Journal of Electrical Power and Energy Systems, International Transactions on Electrical Energy Systems and Journal of Modern Power Systems and Clean Energy (MPCE).
