Associate Professor, Electrical Engineering
Qiuhua HuangDr. Qiuhua Huang received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Arizona State University in 2016, B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in electrical engineering from South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China, in 2009 and 2012, respectively. Before joining Mines, he was a Principal Power System Engineer at UtiliData Inc, working on grid digitization and edge intelligence. Prior to that, he was a Staff Power System Research Engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, WA. USA. He is the recipient of the 2019 IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) Prize Paper Award, 2018 R&D 100 Award and a few best conference paper awards in IEEE PES General Meeting. He serves as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Power Systems and served as an Editor of CSEE JPES, Guest Editor of IET Generation, Transmission and Distribution and IET Smart Grid. His research interests include power system modeling, simulation and control, fusion and application of AI/machine learning and advanced computing technologies for digitizing and transforming power and energy systems.
