Amir Etemadi, Ph.D.
Amir Etemadi is assistant professor of science and engineering at The George Washington University. Dr. Etemadi joined the Electrical Engineering department at GW in 2013 and the EMSE Online program in 2017. He has conducted research in control and operation of renewable energy systems, design and development of microgrids, and optimization and reliability of power systems. He is currently conducting research into the study and analysis of geomagnetic disturbances and their impacts on power system operation, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. His research publications appear in a variety of journals such as IEEE Transaction on Power System, Power Delivery, Industrial Electronics, Smart Grids, Journal of Energies, and Electric Power System Research. He has taught courses on electrical engineering fundamentals, advanced power system and power electronic topics, reliability, and probability and statistics. Dr. Etemadi has received his BSc from University of Tehran (2005), MSc from Sharif University of Technology (2007), and Ph.D. from University of Toronto (2012), in Electrical Engineering. He is a member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
