The City of Cohoes, N.Y. announced on May 3, 2022 that National Grid committing $750,000 in economic development funding to advance their model Municipal Floating Solar Demonstration project. The National Grid grant builds on the foundational $3 million federal investment in this first-of-its-kind in the country floating solar project, secured by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Congressman Paul Tonko in March.

Radoslav Ivanov

Assistant Professor

Prior to joining Rensellaer as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Radoslav was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, where he worked with Dr. George Pappas and Dr. Rajeev Alur. Radoslav defended his PhD dissertation in 2017 at the University of Pennsylvania under the supervision of Dr. Insup Lee and Dr. James Weimer. His research lies broadly in the field of safe and secure autonomy. The natural application domains of his work are safety-critical cyber-physical systems (CPS) such as automotive CPS and medical CPS. The fields relevant to his research are safe autonomy, neural network verification, CPS security, control theory and sensor fusion.

Gauging the Resilience of Complex Networks

Whether a transformer catches fire in a power grid, a species disappears from an ecosystem, or water floods a city street, many systems can absorb a certain amount of disruption. But how badly does a single failure weaken the network?
