Professor Junhua Zhao received his Bachelor and PhD degrees from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China and The University of Queensland, Australia in 2003 and 2007 respectively. He joined CUHKSZ in 2015 and received the National ‘1000 Talents Program’ Distinguished Young Scholar in 2016. Before joining CUHKSZ, He was a Senior Lecturer and also acted as the Principal Research Scientist of Centre for Intelligent Electricity Networks, the University of Newcastle, Australia. He published more than 120 research papers, which include more than 60 articles on prestigious journals. He received the IEEE PES General Meeting best paper award in 2014, Science and Technology Progress Award (2nd prize) from Hunan Provincial government, China in 2013, and three times of ‘F5000’ Top Articles Award from Ministry of Science and Technology, China. He was previously a member of a Global Smart Grid Federation (GSGF) working group, and a member of a Smart Grid Australia (SGA) working group. He has led or participated in more than 20 important research and industrial projects, which include the ‘Smart Grid, Smart City’ trial program funded by Australian government, two flagship cluster programs funded by Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), and one Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) project. He is the editorial board members of JOURNAL OF MODERN POWER SYSTEM AND CLEAN ENERGY, and ELECTRIC POWER COMPONENTS AND SYSTEMS. In 2017, Professor Zhao was rewarded ‘Young Scientist of the Future’ by ADC Forum because of his outstanding contribution to the Australian energy system research.
