About Me

Hamed received his Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of British Columbia in 2015, and B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Tehran in 2009 and 2011, respectively. He is currently working at BC Hydro as a Senior Electrical Engineer with the Transmission Engineering division. Prior to that, he worked as a Post Doctoral Fellow at UBC and as a consultant at BC Hydro for 6 months. He worked in the High Voltage Lab of University of Tehran as a lab assistant for over two years. In Summer 2009, he joined IAESTE for an internship in Florina, Greece, in a 350 MW coal power plant. His second internship was in the Electric Drive Lab, University of Tehran, working on the design of a dimmable electronic ballast for fluorescent lamps. The focus of his B.Sc. thesis was on optimal design of Rogowski coil for partial discharge measurements. During his M.Sc. program, he worked on power system control and stability in presence of large-scale wind farms. He also explored the impacts of renewable energies on power system operation and planning.

Hamed joined Dr. JosÚ MartÝ's research group at the University of British Columbia in 2012 to pursue his Ph.D. degree. He worked on distribution systems analysis and optimization in collaboration with BC Hydro. Later, he joined BC Hydro as a contractor to solve some of the voltage management issues in the distribution feeders with large distributed generation units. Hamed is a registered Professional Engineer with EGBC and a member of the IEEE Power & Energy Society.
