Yu-Wen (Wendy) Lin
I'm a PhD candidate.
Who I am
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley advised by Prof. Costas J. Spanos. I am part of the Research in Artificial Intelligence for Sustainable Energy (RAISE) Lab and a graduate student researcher for Singapore-Berkeley Building Efficiency and Sustainability in the Tropics (SinBerBEST). I received M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley in 2020 and B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2018.
My research interests lie broadly in the span of modeling, optimization, control and their applications to smart buildings. My recent work focuses on digital twins for the built environment and design automation for building energy modeling.
