Biography

Renke Han was born in Liaoning, China, in 1991. He received the B.S. degree in Automation, the M.S. degree in Control Theory and Control Engineering both from Northeastern University, Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China, in 2013 and 2015 respectively, and Ph.D. degree in Power Electronics Systems from Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark, in 2018. In 2017, he was as a Visiting Scholar with Laboratoire d'Automatique, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland. Since November 2018, he joins Energy and Power Group, University of Oxford, UK, as a postdoctoral researcher.
