Dr Zhou got her PhD’ degree from Dalian University of Technology. From 2013, she is Lecture of Harbin Engineering University. She has participated in “International Clean Energy Talent program”, which allow her visit Mälardalen University in Sweden for three months and University of Oxford for one year (2018.5-2019.5).
Her research interests lie in numerical simulations of different kinds of waves and their interaction with marine structures based on fully nonlinear potential theory. She is particular interested in hydrodynamics of wave energy converters, the development and utilization technology of marine energy and wind energy, and numerical techniques of Higher Order Boundary Element Method and CFD.
She has taken charge of more than 10 projects funded by China and is currently participating an UK-China International Cooperation Key Project supported by the NSFC-EPSRC-NERC, in charge of the coupled dynamics of an integrated system of floating offshore platform-wave energy converter-mooring system. She has published more than twenty international journal and conference papers, and one book. She has 2 graduate master students and is supervising 6 master students and assisting supervising 2 doctoral students at the present time.
