Professional Experience:

Faqiry completed his master's and doctorate degrees in electrical and computer engineering at Kansas State University in 2010 and 2017, respectively, and completed his bachelor's degree in electrical and electronics engineering at Kabul University in 2007. From 2011 to 2013, he taught several electrical engineering courses as a faculty at Kabul University and worked as an electrical design engineer as well as a technical design manager at State Corps Engineering where he designed many low and medium voltage electrical distribution systems, and managed two high voltage substations and transmission lines for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects in Afghanistan. From 2017 to 2018, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the department of electrical and computer at Kansas State University.


Faqiry’s current research focuses on the design of markets for efficient operation of the future energy grid as a decentralized network of autonomous agents and multi-agent microgrids. His research interests are power system modeling and analysis, power market operations, distribution system operation and market design, and applications of game theory and auction algorithms in Smart Grid and home energy management systems.

Academic Highlights:

Faqiry has authored and/or co-authored more than 15 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers. He has over seven years of academic and industry experience and is an IEEE member. He is a member of the IEEE working group on multi-agent systems since 2016 and reviews papers for IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, IET Generation, Transmission & Distribution, and Elsevier. He was honored for Outstanding Contribution in Reviewing in Elsevier Operation Research Letters in 2018. He was the recipient of the Best Freshmen Teaching Award of the class of 2008 at the Engineering College of Kabul University and Outstanding GRA Award for the 2016-17 academic year in the department of electrical and computer engineering at Kansas State University. Faqiry has maintained the highest standard of academic achievement throughout his education in his bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees.
