Postdoctoral Researcher-Computational Sciences

Google Scholar

Kinshuk Panda is a postdoctoral researcher in the Complex Systems Simulation and Optimization Group. He is currently investigating dimension reduction and multi-fidelity methods for nonintrusive uncertainty quantification for wind farm design and stochastic optimal power flow. Additionally, as part of the Exascale Computing Project, he is working on developing high-fidelity models for wind scenario generation for solving security-constrained optimal power flow problems on the next generation of U.S. Department of Energy leadership-class supercomputers.

Panda has a background in PDE-constrained optimization and investigated the use of Krylov methods for dimension reduction for uncertainty propagation in his doctoral dissertation.
