About the Lab
The Pal Lab, led by Dr. Anamitra Pal, is in the School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) located in Tempe, Arizona. The lab performs fundamental and applied research in the power and energy domain.
Active research areas include:
- Data Analytics using Time-Synchronized Measurements
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) Applications in Power Systems
- Energy Modeling and Smart Grids
- Critical Infrastructure Resilience
I am looking for motivated Ph.D. students in the areas of optimization, controls, and machine learning.
ASU is the lead university of the Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC), which includes 12 universities and 26 industry members. U.S. News & World Report has named ASU the most innovative university in the nation for six years in a row. If you are interested in joining ASU and working with me, please send your detailed CV to me at Anamitra.Pal@asu.edu or view our “Contact” page on our website.
