Ryan Brody graduated in April 2018 from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering with a concentration in electric power systems and a minor in computer science. He has since started a master's degree at the University of Pittsburgh studying electrical engineering and electric power systems. He is interested in researching power electronic converters and battery management systems for electric vehicle fast charging and distributed energy resources in smart grids. He is also interested in engineering education, aspiring to be a professor when he is older.
Adam Emes completed his B.S. in electrical engineering, with a concentration in electric power engineering, from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018. In his time as an undergraduate, he completed three co-op rotations at Curtiss-Wright EMD, and worked part time as an undergraduate student researcher. From his co-op position, he gained experience with electric motor and generator design. In his undergraduate research, he contributed to projects that utilized signal processing in fault classification and load detection applications. He is currently a second year M.S. student in the electric power systems group at Pitt. His research interests include power converter stability analysis for renewable energy systems.
