About Me

Wenting Li is a Postdoc Research Associate at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). She obtained the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Computer and System Engineering (ECSE) and Master degree in Applied Mathematics at the Rensselaer Polytechnics Institute (RPI) in Dec. 2019. Her supervisor is Prof. Meng Wang. Her doctoral thesis is about developing machine/deep learning based algorithms to enhancing power systems monitoring and protection. Before she came to RPI in 2015, she worked as a research assistant in the Wind Farm Research Center (WFRC) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) under the supervison of Prof. Xu Cai. In 2013, she received her B.S. degree in Elcetrical Engineering and Automation from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT).
