Dr. Meisam Farrokhifar received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2014. His Ph.D. Project and activities since graduation were mainly focused on energy storage devices application along with renewable energy sources in distribution grids. Later he joined to Azad University (Iran) as an assistant professor. He gave graduate lectures, workshops, and seminars on modeling and optimization issues in distribution grids as well as supervising over than 25 master theses. Beside academic activities, he concluded different research projects with regional electricity companies in Tabriz, Iran. His research interests include power systems planning and operation, energy management and renewable energy systems.
He is also an active referee for several international peer-reviewed journals, and he served as a scientific committee member for various international conferences. Also, he has published over 35 papers in refereed journals and international conferences.
Currently, he is a research scientist in the Center for Energy Systems at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, working on “Energy Systems Planning for Government Regulations” project funded by the Next Generation Program: Skoltech-MIT Joint Projects.
Energy Systems Planning for Government Regulations: New Formulations, Models and Algorithms
The main goal of this project is to generate new mathematical methods and software tools to support the decision-making process for planning large-scale (transmission level) electric and gas networks/systems under uncertainty. This project is within the Next Generation Program: Skoltech – MIT Joint Projects.
