I received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering, in 2007, 2009, and 2012, respectively, from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I am currently serving as Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota (UMN), where my primary affiliation is with the Power and Energy Systems research group. My research interests include modeling, analysis, and control of power electronics and power systems with a focus on renewable integration.
