H. B. GOOI received his PhD degree from Ohio State University in 1983. From 1983 to 1985 he was an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsylvania, USA. From 1985 to 1991, he was a Senior Engineer with Empros (now Siemens), Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA where he was responsible for the design and testing coordination of domestic and international energy management system (EMS) projects.

In 1991, Dr. Gooi joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as a Senior Lecturer. He has been an Associate Professor since 1999. In September 2008, he was appointed Deputy Head of Power Engineering Division.

Dr. Gooi is a Senior Member of IEEE, a registered professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, USA and Singapore. He is a member of Sub-Committee for Fundamentals of Engineering Examination (Electrical), Professional Engineers Board Singapore. He was Technical Chairman (‘99, ‘01 and ‘03) of International Power Engineering Conference. He is Program Manager of A*STAR Intelligent Energy Distribution System (IEDS) at NTU. He taught Energy Management System courses for dispatchers and managers at Power System Control Centre in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia. He is a member of IEEE Computing and Analytical Method Sub-Committee, USA and IEEE System Control Center Sub-Committee, USA since ‘98 and ‘01 respectively. He has served as a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Power Systems and IET Proc Generation, Transmission and Distribution since ‘98 and ‘06 respectively. He is listed in Who Who’s in Science and Engineering. He has published over 120 technical papers. Details are available at:
