Field of work

Professor Reza Arghandeh currently serves as the leader of the Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Group (HVL DS-AI) and as the director of the Connectivity, Information & Intelligence Lab (Ci2Lab) at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL) in Bergen, Norway.

In addition to his role at HVL, Prof. Arghandeh holds the title of Research Professor in the Electrical and Computer Department at Florida State University, USA. He previously served as an assistant professor at the same institution from 2015 to 2018. Prior to his tenure at Florida State University, he conducted groundbreaking research as a postdoctoral scholar at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley from 2013 to 2015, USA. 

He completed his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Power Systems at Virginia Tech, USA (2013). He holds Master’s degrees in Industrial and System Engineering from Virginia Tech (2013) and Energy Systems from the University of Manchester and KNTU (2008).

His research interests include applied Artificial Intelligence for spatiotemporal and geospatial data analysis related to complex networks. Core applications include climate adaptation solutions for energy and infrastructure systems.

His research has been supported so far by the U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, the European Space Agency, the European Commission, and the Research Council of Norway.
