Anand completed his Master's in Energy Science, Technology and Policy from Carnegie Mellon University and also holds a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from BITS Goa, India. His research focuses on using network connected devices in buildings for monitoring and optimized controls to improve building operations. Anand is also invovled in several projects that study grid-building interactions for demand response, resilience and load flexibility.
