My name is Borhan Sanandaji and I came to Colorado School of Mines (CSM) in January 2008 to pursue my PhD degree in Electrical Engineering.

Being interested in renewable energy concepts, I joined Colorado Fuel Cell Center (CFCC) as a research assistant under the supervision of Dr. Tyrone Vincent.

My research is focused on developing Solid-Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) control system and system identification. The goal of the Fuel Cell System Control is the design of a control system to regulate the operation of a complete system based on an SOFC stack. This can be achieved generally in two steps: I have finished my master's degree in Tehran Petroleum University of Technology in Automation and Instrumentation Engineering in Iran. The title of my master's thesis is Fuzzy Identification of a MIMO Distillation Column using TS Model Structures. My bachelor's degree was in Electrical engineering in Tehran Polytechnic University of Technology. I chose CSM as my next home because along with its reputation in engineering and applied science, it is a nice and unique university located at the foot of Rocky Mountains. My hobbies, although heterogeneous, include: playing basketball, mathematics, and hiking and camping.
