I completed my Phd from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 2008. My thesis is on Identification and Prevention of Catastrophic Failures in Power Systems. I worked as a post doctoral researcher at SUPELEC, France from 2008 to 2010. During post doctoral research I worked on designing HVDC controlers for improving grid stability. From April, 2010, I am working with the Energy and Utility group at IRL. My research interest includes smart grid, network congestion management, blackout prediction, HVAC, renewable energy, etc.
