Biography

Marija Ilić holds a joint appointment at Carnegie Mellon as Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Engineering & Public Policy, where she has been a tenured faculty member since October 2002.  Her principal fields of interest include electric power systems modeling; design of monitoring, control, and pricing algorithms for electric power systems; normal and emergency control of electric power systems; control of large scale dynamic systems; nonlinear network and systems theory; modeling and control of economic and technical interactions in dynamical systems with applications to competitive energy systems.

Education

M.Sc. and D.Sc. degrees in Systems Science and Mathematics from Washington University in St. Louis and earned her MEE and Dip. Ing. at the University of Belgrade. 

Professional Background

Prior to her arrival at Carnegie Mellon, Dr. Ilić held the positions of Visiting Associate Professor and Senior Research Scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  From 1986 to 1989, she was a tenured faculty member at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she taught since 1984.  She has also taught at Cornell and Drexel.  She has worked as a visiting researcher at General Electric and as a principal research engineer in Belgrade.
