Prof Zhongdong Wang
Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean
I am a Professor of Electrical Power Engineering at the University of Exeter. I received my BEng degree and MSc degree from Tsinghua University of Beijing China in 1991 and 1993, respectively and my PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from UMIST in 1999. I then joined The University of Manchester (then UMIST) in 2000 as a Lecturer, and spent my next 20 years there progressing to Senior Lecturer in 2007, Professor in 2009 and the Associate Dean of Internationalisation for the Faculty of Science and Engineering in 2016. In 2020 I became the Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean for the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter. I am a Fellow of the IET .
My research interests lie in Smart Grids and Low Carbon Electrical Energy Networks, in particular condition monitoring techniques, thermal, electrical transient and magnetic modeling techniques for power system networks, dielectric insulation ageing mechanisms, alternative enviromentally friendly liquid insulating materials, and transformer asset management.
