Chao Gong 2021 winner
In June 2021, Chao Gong applied for and won an IET Postgraduate Prize for his research interest in the safety of high-voltage powertrain based electric vehicles. The prize has motivated Chao and built his confidence to go further in his research. With the support of the award, he plans to attend more conferences and summits to collaborate both in the UK and internationally.
It's fair to say that Chao’s recent award is just the latest recognition of over ten years of studying and working to help engineer a better world.
Chao is now a Research Assistant hired by his PhD supervisor as part of the ‘Newton Advanced Fellowship: Artificial intelligence supported safe operation and health prediction for electric vehicle motors’ project.
In addition to his Postgraduate Research award, he also won an IET Travel Award for international travel. Chao travelled to China in November 2021 to attend the 2021 International Joint Conference on Energy, Electrical and Power Engineering.
Members of the panel felt it was a strong application and that the award would add value and benefit to the IET and the wider community.
Chao has already published over 20 journal and conference papers and has published seven IEEE Transactions journal papers as the first author. He has shared his academic achievements during his PhD with his peers through publications and international conferences.
