Prior to joining the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at San Diego State University as an assistant professor, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. I received the Ph.D. degree from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX; the M.S. degree from the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York (SUNY), Buffalo, NY and the B.S. degree from the University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran all in electrical engineering. I was the recipient of Frederick E. Terman Award from Bobby Lyle School of Engineering. I serve as an editor for IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology and as a reviewer for several IEEE Transactions journals including Smart Grid, Sustainable Energy, Power Systems, and Industrial Informatics. My current research interests include smart grid, microgrids, integrating renewable and distributed resources, and power system operation and planning.
