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 Dr. Anna Scaglione.
Prior to joining UC Davis, I have been a Research Associate in the Robert W. Galvin center for electricity innovation at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL, worked with Dr. Mohammad Shahidehpour. I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in the Sharif University of Technology, under co-supervision of Dr. Mahmud Fotuhi-Firuzabad and Dr. Mohammad Shahidehpour.
My research interests and areas of expertise include smart grid applications and technologies, sustainable energy integration, and cyber-physical systems. Visit my CV page for more information.
