Elizabeth Ratnam
Post-Doctoral Researcher,
Electric Grid

“I am passionate about contributing my expertise to help integrate renewable energy into power systems.”

Elizabeth L. Ratnam received the B.E. (Hons I) degree in Electrical Engineering in 2006, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2016, all from the University of Newcastle, Australia. She subsequently held a research position with the Center for Energy Research at the University of California, San Diego. During 2001–2012 she gained engineering experience at Ausgrid, one of the largest electricity distribution networks in Australia. Her research interests lie in the areas of power systems and control theory. At CIEE, Elizabeth is working as a postdoctoral scholar with Professor Alexandra von Meier, focusing on the demonstration of diagnostic or control algorithms with micro-synchrophasor data from electric utility distribution systems.
