I’m a lecturer in electrical engineering at Universitas Islam Indonesia, but currently in the completion of my PhD at King Abdulaziz University. Yes, I officially have two “homes” now.

I’m working in the area of stochastic scheduling of a grid-connected microgrid. Microgrid operation is subject to high-degree uncertainties produced by different sources, due to which deterministic optimization is insufficient. This motivates me to seek an optimal framework of stochastic optimization deployment.

Areas of Interest

  • Stochastic optimization of microgrids and power systems (current)
  • Detection and pattern recognition of partial discharge in high-voltage apparatuses (past)

Work Experiences

Programming Skills

I’m not a computing person by formal education, but I have been coding extensively in my research works. I use the following languages:

  • MATLAB (arguably the easiest one and many of my publications use it)
  • Python (I use Python here with CVXPY as the main package)
  • Julia (I use Julia here with JuMP.jl and OpenDSSDirect.jl as the main packages)
