Afsaneh Ghanavati

Assistant Professor


Dr. Afsaneh Ghanavati received the BS in Electrical Engineering from the Shiraz University, Iran in 1988; and the MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Northeastern University, Boston, MA in 2012 and 2018, respectively. During her graduate study, Dr. Ghanavati worked on a novel methodology, using signal processing and the concept of dynamic phasors, to monitor power quality. Her present areas of interest include power systems, dynamic phasors, dynamic power decomposition and digital signal processing. She also works in the area of data processing for power systems. Dr. Ghanavati has been a member of the Eta Kappa Nu, Engineering Honor Society at Northeastern University. She is a member of IEEE and IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES). She joined Wentworth Institute of Technology in 2018.
