- Renewable Energy
Jingru accomplished her BSc in Energy and Power Engineering in School of Energy and Mechanical Engineering from Nanjing Normal University. More interested in studying green energy, she changed her major. At Cranfield University, she completed an MSc in Renewable Energy, School of Water, Energy and Environment (SWEE), graduating with a thesis entitled "Modelling oil spill response under fast current". Under the supervision of Dr Liang Yang, she continues to pursue her PhD in the Energy and Power at Cranfield.
Jingru is carrying out a PhD research at Cranfield University. As one researcher of SWEE, her main research interest is "Advanced simulation and control of floating offshore wind turbines". Recently, her studies are about a promising 'green' wave propulsion way---the thrust performance of the foil under wave conditions, also called Wave Devouring Propulsion (WDP). Her work mainly focuses on the development of "one-fluid" framework, which is an effective in-house solver for fluid-structure interaction (FSI) related simulation. Also, her PhD research was sponsored by the State Scholarship Fund from China Scholarship Council (CSC).
