Higher Degree by Research Candidate
School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences
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.
I am currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Adelaide 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.
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.
