Valentina Cecchi


DEGREES: B.S. E.E. 2005, M.S. E.E. 2007, Ph.D., all from Drexel University
EMAIL: vcecchi@uncc.edu


Profile

Originally from Rome, Italy, Valentina attended Drexel University and completed B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 2005, 2007, and 2010, respectively. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and member of the Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC) at UNC Charlotte. Valentina’s main research interests currently include developing electric power line models for modern power systems and smart grids, investigating the impacts of distributed energy resources on the grid, and studying distribution system planning and operation techniques.
