Masood Parvania, Ph.D.
I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California, Davis, in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, working with Prof. Anna Scaglione, at the Center for Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG).
Prior to joining UC Davis, I was a Research Associate in the Robert W. Galvin center for electricity innovation at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL, worked with Prof. Mohammad Shahidehpour. I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering under co-supervision of Prof. Mohammad Shahidehpour and Prof. Mahmud Fotuhi-Firuzabad.
My research focuses on developing mathematical models and optimization techniques for economic, secure, and environmentally-friendly operation of power and energy systems.
