Biography Summary

Dr. Claudio Canizares is a Full Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, where he has held various academic and administrative positions since 1993. Currently he serves as the Hydro One Endowed Chair and as Associate Director of the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy (WISE). He received an electrical engineering degree from the Escuela Politécnica Nacional (EPN) in Quito-Ecuador in 1984, where he held different teaching and administrative positions from 1983 to 1993, and his MSc (1988) and PhD (1991) degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research activities focus on stability, modeling, simulation, control, optimization, and computational issues in small and large power and energy systems in the context of competitive energy markets and smart grids. He has led, or has been an integral part of many grants and contracts from government agencies and companies, in collaboration with researchers in academia and the private sector in Canada and abroad. Dr. Canizares has supervised/co-supervised many research fellows and graduate students. He has authored/co-authored a large number of journal and conference papers, as well as various technical reports, book chapters, disclosures and patents, and has been invited to deliver numerous keynote speeches, seminars, and presentations at institutions and conferences world-wide. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (IEEE), Royal Society of Canada, and Canadian Academy of Engineering. Dr. Canizares is the recipient of various IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Technical Committee and Working Group awards and recognitions, and has held/holds several leadership positions on various IEEE-PES technical committees, working groups and task forces.
