Lei WuWu joined Clarkson in 2010. He received his bachelor of science degree in electrical and computer engineering and his master of science in systems engineering from Xi’an Jiaotong University in Shanxi, China. He received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Before coming to Clarkson, Wu spent two years as a senior research associate in the Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation at Illinois Institute of Technology.
His research interests include stochastic modeling and optimization of large-scale power systems, cyber physical systems, high penetration renewable energy applications, demand response, and power system reliability and economics.

Wu has coauthored more than 40 articles in refereed journals. He received the IEEE Power and Energy Society Student Prize Paper Award as an advisor in 2014. He received over $2 million in grants as principal investigator or co-principal investigator.

Wu is a 2013 National Science Foundation CAREER award recipient. He is also the recipient of the 2012 IBM Smarter Planet Faculty Innovation Award. He is an editor of the IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy and a reviewer for a number of top U.S. and European power- and energy-related journals. Wu is also a senior member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and the health professions, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
