dr. J.S. Giraldo Chavarriaga (Juan)

About Me

Juan S. Giraldo received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira, Colombia, in 2012, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Campinas, Brazil, in 2015 and 2019, respectively. From July 2018 to July 2019, he was a Visiting Researcher at the University College Dublin, Ireland. Later, from October 2019 to May 2021, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands.


Juan is currently a Researcher with the Mathematics of Operations Research group at the University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands, mainly focused on field-tests for energy management and smart grids.


His current research interests include the optimization, planning, and control of electrical power systems, electricity markets, and machine learning applications to power systems.
