ECE professor Ross Baldick was recently elevated to IEEE Fellow. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellows Committee recommends a select group for one of IEEE's most prestitious honors. Dr. Baldick was recognized for contributions to analysis of power system economics.
Professor Baldick's research focuses on optimization and economic theory appliedto electric power system operations and the public policy and technical issues associated with electric transmission under deregulation. Recent research analyzes the robustness of the electricity system subject to terrorist interdiction by testing different terrorist scenarios and assessing the amount of disruption each would cause.
