Biography

My research interests span all branches of control system theory with applications to large-scale electric power systems. I am a part of the FREEDM Systems Center, currently researching several system and control-theoretic problems for the US power grid using Synchrophasor (WAMS) technology, and its integration with renewable energy sources such as wind energy.
