Amith Singhee is the technical lead for the Analytics and Optimization Management System (AOMS) and Outage Prediction and Response Optimization (OPRO). He has a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University in ECE.
In the OPRO project, he leads an effort working with a US utility to develop predictive and optimization-based approaches for precise emergency preparedness. His team's work on the AOMS formed the foundation for the Insights Foundation for Energy product from IBM. His research work spans across simulation, modeling, optimization for energy systems and VLSI, and application middleware. His work on statistical design and optimization was awarded several awards: IEEE CEDA 2011 Donald O. Pederson Award, EDAA Outstanding Dissertation Award 2008, A.G. Milnes Award 2008 from Carnegie Mellon University and several best paper awards at top conferences in the fields of analytics for power systems and electronic design automation. At IBM his work on AOMS and smart grid applications received the Outstanding Technical Achievement Award (OTAA). Amith has served as Program Chair for the IEEE International Workshop on DFM&Y and on the program committee of IEEE ICCAD. Amith has co-authored several books, papers and patents in the area of electronic design automation and smart grid applications. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
