    I am a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. My research is on developing optimization-based and data-driven techniques for power systems and smart grid applications with focus on sensing, controls, and operations. I received the NSF CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation for my research on smart grid; the Best Paper Award from the IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting; the Best Paper Award from the IEEE International Conference on Smart Grid Communication; and the Technical Achievement Award from the IEEE Communications Socity. I have been the Lead PI for over $10 million research projects. Before becoming a faculty member I was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of British Columbia in 2008, M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2004, and B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Amir-Kabir University of Technology in 2002. In 2007, I was a visiting student at Princeton University. I serve as Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, the IEEE Power Engineering Letters, and the IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering. Previously, I served as Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grids for six years. I am the Associate Director of the Winston Chung Global Energy Center. Previously, I served as the Director of the UC-National Lab Center on Power System Cyber Security. I received the Distinguished Teaching Award from the Bourns College of Engineering in 2017. I am an IEEE Fellow, Class of 2020.
