Hossein Jafari

University of Pittsburgh
Electrical and Computer Engineering

My research focuses on exploring the transformative potential of quantum computing in the field of power system engineering. I am particularly interested in how quantum algorithms can revolutionize the analysis and optimization of power grids, enhancing efficiency, reliability, and sustainability. My work aims to bridge the gap between advanced quantum computational techniques and practical power system challenges, such as grid stability, load forecasting, and renewable energy integration. By leveraging the unprecedented computational capabilities of quantum technology, my goal is to contribute to the development of smarter, more resilient power infrastructures capable of meeting the demands of the modern world.
