Jamshid Aghaei (Senior Member, IEEE) received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Power and Water Institute of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2003, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. He is currently a Full Professor with the Lappeenranta University of Technology LUT, Lappeenranta, Finland. Prior to this, Dr. Aghaei was Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Electric Power System Operation and Planning in Shiraz University of technology (SUTech), Shiraz, Iran, from 2010 to 2020. During his employment with SUTech, he had opportunities to join some international universities as a visiting researcher in different periods including: University of Wollongong (UOW), Wollongong, Australia (in 2013 and 2015) and the Department of Electric Power Engineering, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway, from 2017-2019.

Research Interest
The students are the main part of his research. He believes, for many students, research experiences are their most memorable experiences. As my perspective, students bring energy and enthusiasm to research teams and often ask insightful questions -sometimes quite by accident- that can change the ways faculty approach research inquiries. In addition, I believe, research and education strongly complement each other. My experience at SUTech indicates that offering research opportunities to students is an educational activity that does not cost large sums of money, although it does require substantial commitments of faculty time. Offering research to students is a valuable recruiting tool.
Based on this philosophy, my primary research interest concerns:
"studying renewable distributed energy systems (mainly PVs and wind power generation as well as electrical vehicles and energy storage systems) in the context of microgrids operation and planning and their integration to smart multicarrier systems and markets"
Besides, although, I have mainly researched on the aforementioned fields, I am eagerly interested in:

- Electricity Markets
- Application of Optimization in Power Systems Studies
- Power System Flexibility, Security and Reliability.

In addition to my current research, other areas that interest me for the future research stem from my goal of "developing improved ICT based analytical methods to decentralize the operation of renewable distributed energy sources, e.g., electric vehicles and energy storage systems, in smart multicarrier energy networks and microgrids".

I have participated in some related industrial projects in the contexts of the title of position to connect science and technology. Accordingly, the results of his collaborations with industry are as follows:

- Chief investigator of “Scheduling of CCHP based DG units in Distribution Networks considering Power Losses and Voltage Profiles” (Fars Electrical Distribution Company-Shiraz-Iran)- (2012-2013)
- Chief investigator of “Feasibility Study of Implementing DGs in Fars Network Enhancing Transmission Capacity (Congestion Management) and Power System Security (Fars Regional Electric Company, Shiraz, Iran)-(2015- 2017)
- Chief investigator of “Design and Fabrication of 100 kVAr Static Voltage Compensator (SVC) at 400 V Level” (Iran National Steel Industrial Group-INSIG) – (2015- 2017)
- Chief investigator of “Assessment of Implementation Strategies for Ahwaz Distribution Network Automation Considering Network Load Density” (Ahwaz Electrical Distribution Company, Ahwaz, Iran) (2016- 2017)
- Researcher of “Integration of Solar, Wind and Storage Systems into Distribution Grids for Network Support” (Linkage Project between Australian Research Council and Essential Energy in the University of Wollongong, Australia) (2011-2012)
- Researcher in “INDAVE: smart system of renewable energy storage based on INtegrated EVs and bAtteries to empower mobile, Distributed and centralised Energy storage in the distribution grid” (NTNU-EU H2020 Project) (2017-2019)
- Co-investigator of “Security constrained reactive power planning with goal of power losses reduction, improvement of network stability and releasing network capacity” (Fars Regional Electric Company, Shiraz, Iran) (2011-2013)

Teaching Experience
My personal teaching philosophy is to foster critical thinking and problem-solving strategies, facilitate the acquisition of life-long learning skills, and prepare students to function effectively in integrating new information and experiences with their existing knowledge structures. I believe students are entitled to quality instruction in an active and encouraging learning environment. Students should experience repeated opportunities to act, react, and interact with each other and the professor. Accordingly, I have pursued every available opportunity to teach. During his graduate and postgraduate training, I was also fortunate enough to have served as a Thesis Supervisor/Co-Supervisor for PhD and MSc students in the Electrical Power Engineering which mainly have concentrated on microgrids, smart grids and integration of renewables and storages into the electric power systems as well as operation, planning and economics of Microgrids. Beyond these experiences, I am deeply committed to teach related courses for postgraduate students. For instance, two main courses that he has been involved as a teacher in Shiraz University of Technology are “Renewable Power Generation” (usually for spring semesters) and “Smart Grids and Microgrids” (usually for fall semesters) for 8 years. In addition, I have presented a lecture with the title of “Power System Flexibility Using Demand Response Programs” as a guest lecturer in the course of “Electricity Markets” at NTNU. These experiences have built my confidence and interest in teaching and I look forward to the opportunity to not only teach existing courses at the LUT University, but also work to develop new ones.
