Welcome to Power Energy Innovation Lab

Our research interests lie in the fields of electrical power systems,  power electronics,  and  high  voltage engineering, with a focus on modeling, protection and resilience of power electronics based power systems, renewable energy integration, wide-area protection and cybersecurity, HVDC control and operation and machine learning application in power systems.

We are looking for self-motivated and creative Ph.D. candidates. If you are interested in applying for the Ph.D. positions, please contact Dr. He by email (lhe@uic.edu) and send her a copy of your application materials (transcripts, overall GPA, publications, and GRE/TOEFL scores). Candidates with strong power systems/power electronics/computer science background and prior research experience are preferred. We are also looking for Visiting Scholars and Visiting Students.
