The new research project titled “Physics-Aware and AI-Enabled Cyber-Physical Intrusion Response for the Power Grid” is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for 3 years. This $2.7 million research focuses on developing techniques and scalable working prototypes addressing the goal and challenges of achieving coordinated cyber-physical response (of both cyber and physical controls together) in a scalable, secure, and reliable way. The multi-disciplinary and multi-investigator research is lead by Principal Investigator (PI) Kate Davis, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Texas A&M University (TAMU) collaborating with Co-PIs: Ana Goulart, Ph.D. (Associate Professor, Department of Engineering Technology & Industrial Distribution, TAMU), Saman Zonouz, Ph.D. (Associate Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Georgie Tech), Rakesh Bobba, Ph.D. (Associate Professor, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, Oregon State University), Robin Berthier, Ph.D. (CEO & Co-Founder, Network Perception), Hala Balouz (President, Electric Power Engineers), and John Camilleri (General Manager, PSC Consulting).
