Dr Haimeng Wu


Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

Dr. Haimeng Wu joined the Department of Mathematics, Physics, and Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University as a lecturer in 2020. He has also been appointed a guest staff member at Newcastle University since February 2020. Before working at Northumbria University, he was a Research Associate at the School of Engineering, Newcastle University and he had been with the Electrical Power Research Group as a postdoctoral researcher since 2015. In 2012, he received a full Ph.D. scholarship from Engineering and Physical Science Council (EPSRC) as a postgraduate researcher in the UK and then obtained a Ph.D. degree in power electronics at Newcastle University in 2016.

During the period of 2012-2020, he has undertaken various collaborative UK research projects as a principal researcher (2 sponsored by EPSRC and 2 sponsored by Innovate UK). He is the winner of Siemens European TAPAS community challenge competition 2018, competing over 200 proposals across Europe. He also has been serving as a technical committee member of PEMD 2020 and a reviewer for over 15 leading journals of IEEE, IET, and Elsevier, such as IEEE Transaction on Power Electronics and Industrial Electronics. He has joined the Editorial Board of IET Power Electronics as​​​​​​ the associate editor in 2020.
