Outside professional activities


I am an Winokur Family Professor of Electrical Engineering and Applied Mathematics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University and a research affiliate in Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I am also Cofounder and Scientific Advisor of Singularity Energy, Inc which provides a suite of innovative products, developer APIs, and intelligent tools for companies to build the future of decarbonization solutions. My research lies in control, learning, and optimization of networked systems, including theory development, algorithm design, and applications to real-world cyber-physical systems, such as energy systems, buildings, multi-robots, bio-medical systems, etc. The goal is to develop foundational decision-making tools to explore and exploit real-world system structures that can lead to reliable, efficient, and autonomous operation of these systems. My research has been interdisciplinary in nature, integrating various mathematical, computational, engineering, and economic tools. I have received IFAC Thoma Medal, McDonald Mentoring Award, Donald P. Eckman Award, ONR YIP Award, AFOSR YIP Award, NSF CAREER Award, Harvard Climate Change Solution Fund, Harvard PSE Accelerator Award, along with other awards.

The Salata institute

The Salata Institute supports interdisciplinary research that leads to real-world action, including high-risk/high-reward projects by researchers already working in the climate area and new endeavors that make it easier for Harvard scholars, who have not worked on climate problems, to do so.
