Reza Razzaghi received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tehran, Tehran Iran, in 2009 and 2011, respectively and the Ph.D. degree from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2016. From April 2016 to October 2017, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at EPFL.

Dr Razzaghi has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Distinguished Ph.D. Thesis Award of EPFL, Basil Papadias Best Paper Award at the IEEE PowerTech conference in 2013, and the Best Paper Award at the ASAIEM conference in 2017. His work on the Electromagnetic Time Reversal has led to a commercialized patent.

His current research interests include integration of renewable energy resources, power system protection and control, phasor measurement units, real-time simulation of power systems, and electromagnetic transients in power systems.
