Research Focus

Prof. Dubey’s research interests are in the field of artificial intelligence and distributed computing for cyber-physical systems, and smart and connected communities. The fundamental contribution of his work lies in the co-design of resilient computational abstractions and the online learning algorithms and decision procedures for cyber-physical systems. He directs the SCOPE lab (Smart and resilient Computing for Physical Environment) at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems. The impact of his work can be seen with his partnerships in building transformation systems for the Nashville fire department, Nashville transit agency, Chattanooga Transit Agency, and the Tennessee Department of Transportation. 

Some of his key research results include the design of hierarchical decision procedures for responding to motor vehicle crashes, the design of energy-efficient transit operation procedures, and the design of transactive energy systems. Some of his recent publications can be obtained from his lab’s publication page. His work has been funded by NSF, NASA, DOE, ARPA-E. AFRL, DARPA, Siemens, Cisco, and IBM. Abhishek completed his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University in 2009. He received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University in August 2005 and completed his undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University, India in May 2001.
