Jhi-Young Joo is a research scientist with the Grid Integration Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  She earned her Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh in 2013, and her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Seoul National University, Korea, all in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a focus on power systems engineering. She was an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Rolla, MO) for two years before joining the Lab. Jhi-Young won the Best Conference Paper Award at the 2014 IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting  (co-author: Prof. Marija Ilic) for her work on aggregating a large number of flexible loads to mitigate congestions on transmission lines for day-ahead scheduling and near-real-time adjustment. Her research interests include modeling and optimization of power systems and electricity markets, demand response and energy management, integration of renewable and distributed energy resources, including microgrids, into large power systems. She is a Member of the IEEE and a professional member of HKN.
