Dr Wenjuan Song
- Lecturer in in Electrically Powered Aircraft and Operations (Autonomous Systems & Connectivity)
Dr. Wenjuan Song (Member, IEEE) is a lecturer in "Electrically Powered Aircraft and Operations", Propulsion, Electrification & Superconductivity Theme/Group, Autonomous System & Connectivity Division, School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, UK, since early 2022. Her main focus would be on realizing ideas of zero-emission flights using electric, hydrogen-powered, cryo-electric aircraft.
- She received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Beijing Jiaotong University, China, in 2019.
- She was a research assistant in Robinson Research Institute, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand for more than two years from 2016 to 2018.
- During 2019-2021, she worked as a postdoctoral research associate in Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at University of Bath, UK.
Dr. Song was endorsed as "Global Talent" by UK Royal Academy of Engineering in 2021.
Dr. Song was featured as talented Women Early Career Researcher for International Women’s Day, representative for the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, The University of Bath, in 2021.
Dr. Song was featured as an outstanding young professionals in the fields of cryogenics and superconductivity in 2022.
Dr. Song was featured and interviewed as a young professional by European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action under Hi-SCALE CA19108: High-Temperature SuperConductivity for AcceLerating the Energy Transition, 07/2022.
