Kory W. Hedman received the BS degree in electrical engineering and the BS degree in economics from the University of Washington, Seattle, in 2004, and the MS degree in economics and the MS degree in electrical engineering from Iowa State University, Ames, in 2006 and 2007, respectively. He received the MS and PhD degrees in industrial engineering and operations research from the University of California, Berkeley in 2007 and 2010, respectively. He has worked for the California ISO (CAISO) in Folsom, CA, on transmission planning, as well as for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Washington, DC, on transmission switching. Hedman joined the School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University as an assistant professor in 2010. He is also listed as a graduate faculty in ASU’s department of industrial engineering. Professor Hedman’s research at ASU includes integrating renewable resources into the power grid, smart grid technologies, pricing mechanisms and market design, stochastic unit commitment, topology control, modeling and operations of a microgrid, and creating a robust corrective switching model for improved system reliability. Professor Hedman is a member of the Power System Engineering Research Center (PSERC).
