Guangyu joins us for a year from North China Electric Power University, where he has already worked on clean energy markets and wind energy forecasting.
At RAEL (and LBL) he will be working on aggressive decarbonization pathways for China, and the expansion of clean energy services in heavy industry.
His recent paper on day-ahead wind forecasting is available on the RAEL publications pages. To take a look, click here.
Send him note and welcome & get to know Guangyu!
Bo is a doctoral student in Electrical Engineering at Chongqing University. His work is focused on the integration of renewable energy and of electric vehicle fleets into the Chinese power grid.
Natalie is an Energy Engineering (https://engineeringscience.berkeley.edu/energy–engineering/) major at UC Berkeley. Her studies focus on integrating power system analysis with data science, optimizing resource use and studying the outlook of renewable technology adoption in various parts of the world.
In RAEL, Natalie is currently engaged in the SWITCH China project. She works on modeling grid expansion for China, looking at how decarbonization pathways and electric vehicle grid integration will affect the future energy mix. Her topics of interest include long-term power system planning, applications of international energy policy, projecting energy demand, and storage technology adoption.
Hao is a postdoctoral researcher in RAEL as well as in the Department of Earth System Science at Tsinghua University. She holds a double-degree Ph.D. from Beijing Normal University and Aalborg University, specializing in environmental economics and environmental planning respectively. Hao’s research applies interdisciplinary methods to analyze the pollution sources, health impacts and external cost of air pollution in China.
Hao is deeply interested in environmental policies and their effectiveness at balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability. She is currently collaborating with Professor Zhang Qiang, Professor Liu Zhu and Professor Daniel Kammen. Her postdoctoral research investigates energy consumption in developing countries and its impacts on CO2 emissions and human health.
She is lead researcher in the UC Berkeley-Tsinghua U-Duke University partnership on the health impacts of decarbonization of the power sector in China, California, and elsewhere.

马子明 Ziming Ma
博士生 Ph.D Student
Dept. Electrical Engineering and Applied Electronic Technology
Ziming is a visiting doctoral student who will be working on clean energy science, technology, and markets in and for China as part of RAEL’s work with several partner institutions in China.
Dennis has focused his career on technology and sustainability policy in emerging and developing economies. His research interests include technology and innovation policy and impacts to resource and rural development, technology transfer and the political economy of land use management. He has led programs with the Paris based International Energy Agency, as an official of the OECD, working with emerging economies on energy technology policy and contributing to the Agency’s analysis of energy, environment and climate policies (specifically working collaboratively with China and other transition economies in exploring long-term clean energy options, including advanced bioenergy, carbon sequestration and negative emissions systems.) Prior to living in Berkeley, he spent five years in France, and seven years in Beijing, China – advising government and industrial clients on sustainability and technology deployment initiatives. He holds a BA in political science (international relations) and a concentration in East Asian studies from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
