About

Overview

Fatemeh is a Ph.D. student at the City University of London. Currently, she is working on “machine learning applications for Probabilistic Microgrids optimization” under the supervision of Eduardo Alonso and Dimitra Apostolopoulou.

Before joining Ph.D., she involved in both academia and industry. She worked as a researcher for Iran Power Transmission, Generation and Distribution Company (TAVANIR). She is experienced with different industrial software such as CYMDIST, DIgSILENT, ArcGIS, AutoCAD, NEPLAN, DIALux as well as Academic software such as MATLAB and GAMS.

She published 2 booklets for CYMDISt and DigSILENT in Persian language, 2 journal papers in Elsevier, 1 conference paper. Currently, she is working on machine learning application for forecasting renewable energy output and also as a TA, teaching different modules such as Mathematics in computing, Operating System, System Architecture, introduction to algorithms, Power System Design and Engineering Mathematics in City University of London.
