Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr Xueqin (Amy) Liu received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Queen's University Belfast (QUB), Belfast, U.K., in 2009, under the joint training with the Institute of Cyber-Systems and Control, Zhejiang University. She continued her academic career in QUB as a research assistant (2009-2011), Lecturer (2013-2019), and Senior Lecturer with the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Her research focuses on addressing emerging challenges around big data applications in the energy domain. She has published over 70 papers in leading journals/conferences. She organized and chaired an EPSRC global challenge ‘Smart Grid Big Data’ international workshop with Zhejiang University in 2016. She is Co-I leading QUB’s research in the €6.7 Million EU SEUPB INTERREG SPIRE2 project, investigating a Storage Platform for the Integration of Renewable Energy in the Island of Ireland.

Her QUB SPIRE2 team has developed a diagnostic software for identifying the source of oscillations which has been tested, validated in Eirgrid & SONI. Her team has won the Best Graduate Student Poster Award at the prestigious 2021 IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting. She contributed data analytics expertise as PI or Co-I for projects, including EU Horizon 2020 ‘Future-Proof’, British Council ‘TIIWAM’, £11M Ofgem low carbon networks ‘Smart Street’, and EPSRC industrial CASE ‘load forecasting’. She is a past director of QUB’s MSc in Electrical & Electronics Engineering, an Associate Editor of Energy Conversion & Economics (IET), and a member of IEEE Women in Power Society.
