Ph.D. (Fall 2020)
Electrical Engineering
Texas A&M University







I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree (First Class Honors) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in 2013. My interests include cyber-physical systems modeling and simulation, power system state estimation, distribution systems and microgrids, data science, and embedded systems.

I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Karen Butler-Purry in Fall 2020. My dissertation is titled: “Control and Black Start Restoration of Islanded Microgrids”. My dissertation focuses on developing black start restoration methods for microgrids operating in island mode with considerations of load unbalance compensation, synchronization of distributed generators, power-sharing, and optimal power flow/control of islanded microgrids.
