Saurabh Amin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at MIT with he leads the Resilient Infrastructure Networks Lab (RESIL). He currently serves as Director of Henry L. Pierce Laboratory for Infrastructure Science and Engineering and CEE Undergraduate Officer. He is a member of the Laboratory of Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) and the Operations Research Center (ORC) at MIT. Since joining MIT in 2011, he has pursued research in the design of inspection and control algorithms for infrastructure systems. His work builds on foundations in control theory, game theory, and optimization in networks. His papers have addressed problems in resilient network control, information systems and incentive design, and optimal resource allocation in large-scale infrastructure systems.
By focusing on the domains of highway transportation, electric power distribution, and urban water networks, he develops new theory and design tools for improving the performance of critical infrastructure systems in the face of disruptions, both stochastic and adversarial. Amin received his Ph.D. in Systems Engineering from the University of California Berkeley in 2011. His mentees have secured tenure-track positions at major universities, including Cornell University, Georgia Tech, NYU, USMA West Point, and UT Austin.
