Dr. Amro Farid joined MI in July 2010 as an assistant professor in the Engineering Systems & Management program and currently leads the Laboratory for Intelligent Integrated Networks of Engineering Systems (LI2NES). Prior to joining, he received his Sc.B. (2000) and Sc.M. (2002) in Mechanical Engineering from MIT where he focused on System Dynamics and Control. He completed his Ph.D. (2007) at the Institute for Manufacturing within the University of Cambridge Engineering Department. This research addressed the design and evaluation of Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems to support short product life cycles and mass-customization. In so doing, novel simulation methods were developed while completing work in over 30 industrial companies in a variety of industrial sectors. More recently, he has worked as an environment and green house gases specialist at Air Liquide Group. There he fulfilled the role of environmental manager for Air Liquides worldwide fleet of production facilities and also served as a technical policy advocate for the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme and Integrated Pollution Prevention & Control directives as applied to best available techniques in the design and operation of hydrogen and syngas production facilities. Since joining MI, he has focused ont he large-scale penetration of variable energy resources in the power and has maintained active contributions in the MIT Future of the Electricity Grid study, the IEEE Control Systems Society, and the MIT-MI initiative. He has authored over 30 refereed publications.
