Ioannis (Giannis) Marios Granitsas grew up in Athens, Greece. He received his Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2017. Afterwards, he worked for a year as a research assistant under the supervision of Prof. Costas Vournas at the Laboratory of Electric Power Systems (ECE NTUA), examining the effect of wind farm stochastic power variability on the voltage stability support to the Hellenic Interconnected System. Before joining the University of Michigan, he took up a 5-month internship as an energy analyst at Eunice Energy Group located in Athens, where he contributed in the analysis of the energy market in order to find import or export opportunities.
Giannis joined the University of Michigan in 2019 and is currently pursuing his PhD in Electrical Engineering, working as a Research Assistant at the Michigan Power and Energy Laboratory, under the supervision of Prof. Ian Hiskens and Prof. Johanna Mathieu. His research interests include the use of stochastic methods, optimization and data analysis in order to cope with the increasing uncertainty introduced by renewable energy sources in electric power systems and energy markets.
