About Me     PublicationsPublications.html

My research interests lie at the intersection of power systems, optimization, and controls. I work on developing novel feedback and optimization algorithms that improve resilience of power systems, which is increasingly more important as power systems are operating closer and closer to their limits.

Past work includes: model predictive control of bulk power systems, distributed control of multi-agent systems, applications of optimization and systems theory to electric and multi-energy power systems.

Prior to joining the University of Vermont, I was lead systems engineer at Root3 Technologies. I received my MS and PhD from the University of Michigan in Electrical Engineering: Systems and a dual-degrees in Electrical Engineering and Applied Mathematics from the University of Cincinnati.
