Rui Bo

Assistant Professor

Electrical Engineering

Dr. Bo joined Missouri University of Science and Technology as an assistant professor in September 2017. He received the BSEE and MSEE degrees in electric power engineering from Southeast University (China) in 2000 and 2003, respectively, and received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) in 2009. He worked at ZTE Corporation and Shenzhen Cermate Technologies Inc. as a software engineer and architect from 2003 to 2005, respectively. From 2009 to 2017, he worked at Midcontinent Independent Transmission System Operator (MISO) as a principal engineer and project manager. Dr.Bo is a senior member of IEEE, and an editor of IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy.
