Higher Degree by Research Candidate

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences


I am currently a PhD candidate in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Adelaide, carrying out my research under the supervision of Dr Ali Pourmousavi and Professor Nesimi Ertugrul. I work on developing new battery storage sizing strategies based on various predictability measures for utility-scale PV/wind farms.

I received the BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering with a major in Power Systems from the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran in 2016 and 2018, respectively. I have also worked as a research assistant in the Reliability and Distributed Generation Lab at the Sharif University of Technology from 2018 to 2020.

My research interests include power system optimisation; distribution network planning and operation; and grid integration of renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, and energy storage systems.
