Manohar Chamana

Email | Bio

Dr. Chamana is an Instructor with the National Wind Institute (NWI) at Texas Tech University - focused on renewable energy and energy storage integration in the electrical grid - Education and Research. Before joining NWI, he was with the smart grid department of an electrical distribution utility, ComEd, and a renewable energy development and testing company, GroupNIRE. He also interned in power systems integration group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. He received the M.S. degree from Texas Tech University in 2011, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Charlotte in 2016, both in electrical engineering. He has several publications in leading power- and energy-related venues. His research interests include modeling and analysis of active distribution networks for grid-services and resiliency benefits, cyber-physical security, building energy management systems, and economic impacts of distributed energy resources. He currently serves as a Co-Principal Investigator on the Texas Workforce Commission, Department of Energy, and Department of Defense grants. He is actively involved in the GLEAMM related activities to develop testbeds for research and education. As an instructor, he teaches the following courses: Wind Energy Grid Integration, Advance Technical Wind Energy, Critical Infrastructure, and Energy Storage in Grid in the Wind Energy program.

Tommy Dang

Email | Bio

Tommy Dang is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Texas Tech University where he directs the interactive Data Visualization Lab (iDVL). His research on big data visualization and visual analytics has appeared in Computer Graphics Forum and IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics and has been presented at IEEE Information Visualization, IEEE Visual Analytics Science and Technology, EG/VGTC Conference on Visualization, among others. The mainstream of his research is on visual features (or Scagnostics) for analyzing the pairwise correlation of multivariate data. Working directly with these measures, his research was able to locate anomalous or interesting subsets of variables/sub-series for massive, dynamic, and high dimensional data in scientific and social applications. He also has special interests in 3D modeling, computer animation, and virtual reality. Dr. Dang has previously been a post-doc on a DARPA-funded project on biological network visualization at the Electronic Visualization Lab at the University of Illinois at Chicago which focuses on advanced virtual reality, notably the CAVE2™ hybrid reality environment and the SAGE2™ scalable amplified group environment.
