Dr. Abhishek Dubey is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Vanderbilt University, Senior Research Scientist at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems. Abhishek directs the ScopeLab at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems and is the co-lead of Vanderbilt Institute for Smart Cities Operation and Research (VISOR). His research focuses on the resilient design and operation of complex large-scale transportation and electrical cyber-physical systems. In particular, he emphasizes decision-theoretic methods, component-based software engineering, anomaly detection, and fault diagnosis, resilience and recovery, and decentralized operations for these CPS. He leads smart and connected community research efforts focusing on the design and optimization of public transit systems in Chattanooga, TN, and Nashville, TN through his group smarttransit.ai and the emergency response system optimization through his group statresp.ai.
His key contributions include a robust incident prediction and dispatch system developed for Nashville Fire Department, a privacy-preserving decentralized system for peer-to-peer energy exchange, and online fault detection and isolation in breaker assemblies in power transmission lines. His other contributions include middleware for online fault-detection and recovery in software-intensive distributed systems and a robust software model for building cyber-physical applications, along with spatial and temporal separation among different system components, which guarantees fault isolation. His work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, NASA, DOE, ARPA-E, AFRL, DARPA, Siemens, and Cisco Systems. Overall, he has published more than 150 articles.
Abhishek completed his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University in 2009. He received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University in August 2005 and completed his undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University, India in May 2001.
