I am an Associate Professor and project leader in the Section of Building Energy and Services. My research focus is on compact thermal energy storage for flexible heating and cooling systems - including experimental development, testing and demonstration. My work contributes to national and international projects - currently: IFD “Cool-Data” (WP lead), IEA SHC Task 67/ ES Task 40 (Subtask lead, lead of Danish participation). Since 2023 I am vice chair of the thermal energy storage working group at the Danish Center for Energy Storage: DaCES I teach heating installations as well as solar energy supply in DTU courses in Lyngby and Sisimiut. Based on my work on combined long- and short-term heat storage with PCM, I obtained a PhD double degree in 2019 (DTU, Chinese Academy of Sciences). From 2013-2015 I conducted industrial research at the Austria Solar Innovation Center. From 2011-2013 I have been project assistant at TU Vienna.
