Spotlight on: Anna Scaglione
Power systems are one of the most promising avenues for addressing the problem of climate change, both economically and socially. But current energy delivery systems and cyber infrastructures that support power systems are still lacking in many respects. They are often not interoperable and do not reliably provide the necessary support to solve online, large-decision problems in real time.
Professor Anna Scaglione is motivated to solve this important problem through her research on algorithms and data analytics for networked systems and intelligent infrastructures. She aims to make energy delivery systems moresecure, sustainable and reliable.
Research on new systems architectures that better leverage information and computation in critical infrastructures, such as the power grid— but also as it relates to cities, transportation, water and agriculture — will pave the path toward sustainable growth with respect to intelligent infrastructure.
