Salman Mohagheghi

Associate Professor, Electrical Engineering

Salman MohagheghiDr. Mohagheghi received the B.Eng. from University of Tehran, Iran, M.Sc. from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran and PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA all in Electrical Engineering in 1998, 2001 and 2006 respectively. He joined Colorado School of Mines in January 2011 to pursue research and teaching interests in various areas of power electrical engineering. Prior to joining School of Mines, he was a Senior R&D Engineer at ABB Corporate Research Center, Raleigh, NC, USA from 2007 to 2010 where his focus was on design and implementation of solutions for advanced distribution automation systems and distributed energy management. Before that, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Power System Control and Automation Laboratory, Georgia Institute of Technology from 2006 to 2007 where he was involved in developing solutions for energy management and situational awareness in electric transmission networks. Dr. Mohagheghi is a member of the IEC TC-57 WG-17 on Communications Systems for Distributed Energy Resources. He is also involved in multiple IEEE PES task forces, namely on cyber-security, Microgrid control and computational intelligence. He is the recipient of the 2008 Best Reviewer Award from the Industrial Automation and Controls Committee, IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS).
