Amin Awarded Tenure by MIT


The School of Engineering has announced that 17 members of its faculty have been granted tenure by MIT, including LIDS Affiliate Member Saurabh Amin.

Dr. Saurabh Amin received his B. Tech. degree from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee, in 2002; MS degree from the University of Texas, Austin, in 2004; Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2011. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. His research focuses on the design and implementation of high confidence network control algorithms for infrastructure systems. My research group works on robust diagnostics and control problems that involve using networked systems to facilitate the monitoring and control of large-scale critical infrastructures, including transportation, water, and energy distribution systems. We also study the effect of security attacks and random faults on the survivability of networked systems, and designs incentive-compatible control mechanisms to reduce network risks.

“The tenured faculty in this year’s cohort are a true inspiration,” said Dr. Anantha Chandrakasan, dean of the School of Engineering. “They have shown exceptional dedication to research and teaching, and their innovative work has greatly advanced their fields.”
