W. Yu



Wei Yu is a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the Wind Energy Section at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering. Before joining TU Delft, she worked as a research scientist at TNO, where she has contributed to multiple projects of wind turbine aerodynamics, multidisciplinary design and optimization. Prior to that,  Wei was a postdoctoral researcher in the Wind Energy group at TU Delft for a short period. She received her Ph.D. from TU Delft in 2018.  Her Ph.D. research focused on the unsteady aerodynamics of wind turbines. Wei worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Engineering Thermo-physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences for two years during the Wind Energy Master programme, where she worked on smart rotor control using trailing edge flaps.


Wei’s research interests include the following aspects:  

·       Wind turbine aerodynamics at multi-scale

·       Wind turbine aeroelasticity

·       Unsteady rotor/wake aerodynamics

·       Design/optimization of wind turbines and their add-ons assisted by machine learning
