Jason Poon

I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Electrical Engineering Department at Stanford University, where I am a member of the Stanford University Power Electronics Research Lab. I hold a research affiliate position in the Energy Technologies Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley in 2019.

I research power electronics and their applications in next-generation power and energy systems, including renewable energy integration, miniaturized and on-chip power, and electrified transportation.
