Jason Poon

I am currently a postdoc in the EE 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 EECS from UC Berkeley in 2019.

My goal is to develop ubiquitous power electronics systems, and my approach spans from fundamental technologies to high-impact applications. My research focuses on new circuit architectures and devices, system-level control and optimization, and applications including renewable energy integration, miniaturized and on-chip power, and electrified transportation.
