    Mareldi Ahumada Paras

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Energy Resources Engineering

    BioPostdoctoral scholar working with the Climate and Energy Policy Program at the intersection of climate policy, energy resilience and decarbonization. My graduate research focused on power system resilience and planning during extreme events. Previously, I worked at General Electric Company as an Edison and operability engineer on power turbine design and remote diagnostics of existing fleet.

  • Xiaofan Cui

    Xiaofan Cui

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Energy Resources Engineering

    BioWelcome to my home page! I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at Stanford University, sponsored by Prof. Simona Onori. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor working with Prof. Al-Thaddeus Avestruz. My research bridges concepts from circuits, control, and systems to address challenges in future power and energy systems. My Ph.D. dissertation focused on physics-based modeling, control, and design of energy systems. At Stanford, I broadened toward data-driven modeling, identification, and prediction of energy systems. Future energy systems can be more heterogeneous in form and more agile in actuation because of more integration of power electronics. My proposed work addressed these challenges by innovating control-aware modeling frameworks, provably-correct control policies, physics-informed learning schemes, and high-performance hardware validations.

    I earned two M.S. degrees in ECE and Mathematics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I received two bachelor's degrees in Electrical Engineering and Economics from Tsinghua University, China. I enjoy reading and hiking in my spare time. If you are interested in future energy systems, I believe my “full-stack” skillsets from theory to hardware would be a good complement to your previous experiences. Please feel free to reach out to me by email. Have a good day!

He has been actively contributing to international collaborations, including the ongoing IEA EBC Annex 81 (Data-Driven Smart Buildings) and Annex 82 (Energy Flexible Buildings Towards Resilient Low Carbon Energy Systems).

  • Mingliang Liu

    Mingliang Liu

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Energy Resources Engineering

    BioI am currently a postdoctoral scholar working with Tapan Mukerji on digital rock physics at Stanford University. My research focuses on geophysics inverse problems, seismic reservoir characterization, history matching, digital rock physics, data assimilation and deep learning. I completed my PhD degree in geophysics from the University of Wyoming in 2021 under the supervision of Dario Grana, and earned the bachelor and master degree from China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) in 2013 and 2016, respectively.
