Jesus Silva-Rodriguez

Jesus Silva-Rodriguez graduated with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Houston, and started his PhD program here as a direct PhD student in January 2021. During his undergraduate studies, Jesus was a recipient of the DAAD RISE Scholarship in 2019 and participated in a research internship at the Technical University Dortmund, Germany, performing feasibility studies to develop simulation models for a Pulse Electroacoustic (PEA) cell, used in the detection of space charges in insulating materials for High Voltage DC applications. Currently, Jesus is pursuing his PhD in Electrical Engineering focusing in optimization models for the water-energy nexus for small communities, as well as microgrid energy management and power systems operations.
