Dr Da Huo is a Lecturer in Energy Systems Intelligence with the Centre for Energy Systems and Strategy at Cranfield University. His research covers the operation and planning of flexible resources, power distribution systems, and whole energy systems to facilitate the transition towards net-zero from the perspectives of network security, cost-effectiveness, reliability and resilience with the incorporation of renewable energy. Prior to joining Cranfield University, Da worked as a research associate for a EU H2020 MERLON project at Newcastle University from 2019 to 2021, focusing on microgrid optimisation. He received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Bath in 2018, focusing on the optimisation of multi-vector energy systems at the community level. He obtained the B.Eng. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Bath, and in electrical power engineering from North China Electric Power University, both in 2014.
