Adam F. Abdin

Dr. Adam F. Abdin is currently a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow within the research team on "Risk and Resilience of Complex Systems" at the Laboratory of Industrial Engineering, CentraleSupélec, University Paris-Saclay, France.

Dr. Abdin's research is focused on developing techno-economic modeling and optimization frameworks for improving the resilience of complex engineering systems, critical infrastructure systems and interdependent systems, against natural and man-made hazards. Most notably, the development of methodological frameworks combining data analytics approaches with robust optimization techniques to improve the robustification and emergency response strategies of those systems against the different hazards.

Dr. Abdin obtained his Ph.D. degree in Engineering of Complex Systems from Ecole CentreSupélec, University Paris-Saclay, for the research work done within the "Chair on Complex Systems and the Energy Challenge" of the European Foundation for New Energy of Electricite de France (EDF). The Ph.D. research is on the "techno-economic modelling and robust optimization of power systems planning considering a high share of renewable energy production and extreme weather events" under the supervision of Prof. Enrico Zio. 

Previously served as an intern at the United Nations Environmnet Program (UNEP) advisory service on the topic of the transition towards green economy, as well as 2 years of proffesional experience in the industrial and academic sectors. He is a holder of a B.Sc. degree in Design and Production Engineering from Ain Shams University, Egypt; a Master degree in the Electric Power Industry from Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Spain; and a Master degree in Economics of Network Industries jointly offered by: Université Paris-Sud XI, Université Paris-Dauphine, Ecole Polytechnique, CentraleSupélec and Télécom ParisTech.
