I am an Assistant Professor in the area of power and energy systems at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research is geared towards enabling the integration of renewable and distributed energy resources in the modern power grid. I am interested in developing rigorous analytical frameworks, fast algorithmic architectures and efficient market designs to help said integration. My CV.
