Miguel A. Ortega-Vazquez

  • Affiliate Assistant Professor

Miguel A. Ortega-Vazquez received his B.Sc. (Hons) degree in electrical engineering from the Instituto Tecnológico de Morelia, Mexico, in 1999 and his M.Sc. degree from the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, Nuevo León, Mexico, in 2001.  In 2006 he received his Ph.D. from The University of Manchester (formerly UMIST).  All his degrees have an emphasis in power systems.

Professor Ortega-Vazquez was a postdoctoral scholar at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Manchester, until 2010, and assistant professor at the Department of Energy and Environment, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, until 2011. In 2012 he joined UW EE as a research assistant professor; in 2013 he was appointed as an assistant professor.  His current research interests include power system security, power system economics, integration of renewable energy sources and the smart grid.

Professor Ortega-Vazquez is an editor of the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid.

Research Interests
