Ph.D. student Xinyue Hu received the best poster award at MinneWIC 2019, ACM-W’s celebration of women in computing in the Upper Midwest. She was honored for her poster “Data-Driven Power Flow Analysis for Smart Grids.”

The focus of the poster is on analyzing the power flow of smart grid systems. By employing machine learning models, Hu and her fellow researchers are able to map the rules of power systems.

The main thrust of Hu’s research is in smart grids, machine learning and data mining.  She hopes her work can contribute to making smart grids a reality to help save energy and build and efficient and reliable power system.

MinneWIC 2019 was held in Duluth, MN and brought together students, faculty, and computing professionals from across Minnesota and neighboring states to share experiences and strategies for recruiting and retaining women in computing fields, and explore issues common to women working in these fields.

Please join CS&E in congratulating Hu on receiving this award.
