Towards Sustainable Electric Transportation Systems

The mobility scene is going to change rapidly in the coming years as electric vehicle (EV) adoption rates increase, ride sharing continues to grow, and autonomous vehicles proliferate. However, it is well-known that the environmental benefits of transportation electrification will only be realized if electric vehicles (EVs) are charged using renewable energy resources, and at times when the power grid is not under stress. In this talk, I will present some of our recent research results on methods that can enable sustainable EV charging practices in smart cities, ranging from personal vehicle charging in parking lots or fast charging station to autonomous mobility-on-demand platforms that operate a fleet of EVs..


Mahnoosh Alizadeh is an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California Santa Barbara. Dr. Alizadeh received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2009 and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California Davis in 2013 and 2014 respectively, both in Electrical and Computer Engineering. From 2014 to 2016, she was a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University. Her research is focused on the design of network control and optimization algorithms for societal-scale cyber-physical systems, with a particular focus on renewable energy integration in the power grid and electric transportation systems. She is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award.
