Short Bio

I joined the department of electrical and computer engineering at University of Denver in September 2013. Prior to that I was a visiting faculty at Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation (2010-2012) and a research/instructional assistant professor at University of Houston (2012-2013). I received the Ph.D. degree from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL, in 2010, the M.S. degree from Sharif University of Technology in 2007, and the B.S. degree from University of Tehran in 2005, all in Electrical Engineering. My research interests include Smart electricity grids, Microgrid design and operation, Renewable energy integration, Power system operation and planning, and Power system economics.
