Josue Prado

Teaching Assistant Professor

Josue Prado received the bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Santa Catarina State University in Brazil in 2012 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2020. From 2018 to 2020, he conducted research on power system flexibility and resilience at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, CO. Before joining Mines, he was an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering for four years at Washington State University Vancouver. Josue is passionate about teaching power engineering courses and mentoring students to engineering success.
