Professional Bio:

Prof. Amro M. Farid is currently a Visiting Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT and an Associate Professor of Engineering at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. He leads the Laboratory for Intelligent Integrated Networks of Engineering Systems  (LIINES) and has authored over 150 peer reviewed publications in

He received his Sc. B. in 2000 and his Sc. M. 2002 from the MIT Mechanical Engineering Department. He went onto complete his Ph.D. degree at the Institute for Manufacturing within the University of Cambridge (UK) Engineering Department in 2007. He has varied industrial experiences from the electric power, automotive, semiconductor, defense, chemical, and manufacturing sectors. As an Environment and Greenhouse Gases Specialist, he designed an implemented Air Liquide's Worldwide Environmental Management System and was the lead technical advocate for Air Liquide's position on the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. In 2010, he began his academic career as a visiting scholar at the MIT Technology Development Program and the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology (UAE). In 2014, he founded Engineering Systems Analytics LLC as a startup engineering software and consulting company to provide techno-economic insight to energy and infrastructure operators. In 2021, he became a Fulbright Future Scholar to investigate the energy-water-hydrogen nexus in Australia.

As an academic, he has made active contributions to the MIT-Masdar Institute Collaborative Initiative, the MIT Future of the Electricity Grid Study, the IEEE Vision for Smart Grid Controls, and the Council of Engineering Systems Universities. He currently serves as Chair of IEEE Smart Cities R&D Technical Activities Committee, and Co-Chair of the IEEE Systems, Man & Cybernetics (SMC) Technical Committee on Intelligent Industrial Systems. He is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the ASME and INCOSE.
