My research have been focused on intelligent systems and their application to the areas of energy and the environment. In particular, I am interested in theory and applications of distributed computing, deep learning, and metaheurstic optimization methods. The application areas include forecasting, energy management, distributed energy resources, and wireless sensor networks.
Currently and in the past, my research has been supported by the following agencies CFI, CFREF, MITACS, NSERC, and by a number of industrial sponsors and research partners, including EPCOR Distribution and Transmission Inc., ATCO Electric, NVIDIA, ACQBUILT, Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO), Altalink, BC Transmission Corporation, BC Hydro, Bonneville Power Administration, EDF Energy, Hydro Quebec, NALCOR Energy, NB Power, TEPCO.
The unique combination of research in intelligent systems, energy, and the environment, provides students in my research group with a unique opportunity to prepare for academic and industrial careers in these exciting and sought after fields.
