Mohammad Rasouli

UPDATE: I have moved to Stanford University Where I am a post doctoral scholar in the Management Science and Engineering Department working with Prof. Ramesh Johari and Prof. Ram Rajagopal. My new website is under construction. Stay tunned!

In January 2018, I graudated from PhD program in Electrical Engineering: Systems at the University of Michigan working with Prof. Demosthenis Teneketzis, where I also followed my MSc in Economics. Prior to that I received MSc in Electrical Engineering:Communication Systems working with Prof. Jamal Golestani in 2011 and BSc in Electrical Engineering in 2009 both from Sharif University of Technology.

I am thrilled to work with Prof. Paul Milgrom, Prof. William Hogan , and Prof. Asuman Ozdaglar as committee members of my thesis on sustainable markets for electricity networks.

My research interests include stochastic control, mechanism design, and learning with applications to cyber-physical systems. I particularly study energy systems.
