About me

I have done my PhD in the dep. of Electric Power & Energy Systems (EPE) at KTH - Royal Institute of Technology in 2017. Recently I joined OFFIS - Institute for Information Technology in Germany to continute my career out of KTH. I received my first degree in energy enigeering from Sharif University of Technology in 2008. Then, I have worked in the field of reliability analysis for four years. I recieved the second M.Sc. degree in electric power engineering from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2012. I have spent some times in University of Bologna, KU Lueven and ABB as visiting researcher. 


My areas of research are focused on power system operation and control. More precisely, the topics cover:

  • Operation of smart future transmission system, specially Super and HVDC grids 
  • Distributed optimization and control 
  • ICT infrastructures for power system operation
  • Real-time simulation modeling and co-simulation test-beds
