Dr Jiajia (James) Yang


I am a Research Associate in Energy Systems with the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications, UNSW Australia.

I was awarded the UNSW-Tsinghua University Collaborative Research Fund - Seed Grants in 2019 as the lead investigator for the project of Localized Energy Transaction Market Mechanism for Future Digital Grid System. (Only 3 successful applicants under the same theme area of digital grid). I was also jointly granted the Interdisciplinary Seed Funding Award 2020 by the UNSW Digital Grid Futures Institute. I served as a key investigator in several other industry projects.

I received my B. Eng from Northeast Electric Power University, China in 2011, M. Eng from Zhejiang University, China in 2014 and Ph.D. from the University of New South Wales, Australia in 2018, all in Electrical Engineering.

My research interests include: 1) localized energy transaction; 2)electricity retailing; 3) data mining in smart grid; 4) renewable energy integration; 5) power markets. Until 2020, I have more than 20 peer-reviewed publications, including IEEE Transactions journal papers and IEEE conference papers.

I am an Associate Editor for the journal of IET Energy Conversion and Economics.
I served as a Guest Editor for the journal of Electric Power Construction (special issue on "transactive energy systems“, 2019).
I am a Technical Committee Member of the 2020 IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies Asia (ISGT Asia 2020), Nov. 23-27, 2020, Perth, Australia.
I am a Technical Committee Member of the 2020 International Conference on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (ICPS 2020), Dec. 28-29, 2020, Chennai, India.
I am a Technical Committee Member of the 2020 International Conference on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, Dec. 28-29, 2020, Chennai, India.
I am a Member of the IEEE P2781TM/D5.2 Standard “Guide for Load Modelling and Simulations for Power Systems” Working Group”.
I am a Reviewer for top-tier international journals in electrical engineering, including: IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, IEEE Transactions on Smart GridIEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, etc.
