Sanmukh R Kuppannagari


Short Bio:

I am a 5th year PhD Candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Southern California under the advisement of Dr Viktor Prasanna. My current research focus is on developing deterministic and stochastic optimization algorithms and their approximations for net load balancing in smart grids with high PV penetration.

Research Interests:

Approximation Algorithms, Smart Grids, Demand Response,Supply Demand Matching Algorithms.
