Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering
Saurabh Amin is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. His research focuses on the design and implementation of high confidence network control algorithms for infrastructure systems. He works on robust diagnostics and control problems that involve using networked systems to facilitate the monitoring and control of large-scale critical infrastructures, including transportation, water, and energy distribution systems. He also studies the effect of security attacks and random faults on the survivability of networked systems, and designs incentive-compatible control mechanisms to reduce network risks. Dr. Amin received his Ph.D. in Systems Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2011. His research is supported by NSF CPS FORCES project, NSF CAREER award, Google Faculty Research award, and Siebel Energy Institute Grant.
