ARPA-E Innovation Summit 2016

I will be attending the ARPA-E innovation summit 2016 in Washington D.C.


University of Pennsylvania is showcasing emerging energy technologies at the summit and DR-Advisor is one of the technologies that Penn will display. This is my first time attending the summit, so I’m excited and looking forward to it.



DR-Advisor: Demand Response Made Easy

We finished compiling our video pitch for DR-Advisor: A data-driven demand response recommendation system. DR-Advisor generates optimal set-point recommendations for the building operator which guarantee load reduction and thermal comfort.

Check out the video below:

SCOPE 2016, CPS Week

I am on the program committee of the SCOPE 16 workshop to be held at CPS week, in Austria. This is the first International Workshop on Science of Smart City Operations and Platforms Engineering (SCOPE) in partnership with Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC).


Visiting Texas Instruments

After spending the day at Texas A&M in College Station, I drove for 3 hours to reach Dallas, TX.

Will be visiting TI tomorrow. I’m scheduled to give a talk in the afternoon about our data-driven demand response research.

I met with a lot of folks from TI at SRC Techcon 2 days ago in Austin. This will be a good opportunity to learn more about TI and their work. Looking forward to it !


Visiting Texas A&M University

Looking forward to visiting Texas A&M today. I am scheduled to meet fit faculty in ECE who work in the area of energy systems. I will also give a talk at a seminar later in the afternoon.

Texas A&M have a huge campus ! and this would be the third time I’m going there.
