Dr Fei Teng is a lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London. He is currently serving as the education director of Energy Futures Lab and the deputy director of Imperial - Tsinghua Joint Research Centre for Intelligent Power and Energy Systems. He is also holding a visiting position at MINES ParisTech, France.

Dr Teng graduated with a BEng from Beihang University, China in 2009 and obtained Ph.D. from Imperial College London in 2015. He worked as a Research Associate at Imperial from 2015 to 2017 and as an Assistant Professor in Smart Grids at MINES ParisTech, France in 2017.

His research focuses on the efficient and resilient operation of future high IBG-penetrated cyber-physical energy systems. He has authored more than 50 scientific publications in leading power system journals and conferences. His research has been funded by EPSRC, ESRC, Innovate UK, Royal Society, EDF Energy, and National Grid ESO.
