Fredy Ruiz is Associate professor at the Electronics Engineering Department of Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Colombia. He received the Bachelor (2002) and M.Sc. (2006) degrees in Electronics Engineering, both from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Colombia), and the Ph.D. (2009) degree in Information and System Engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy). Fredy served as Head of the Electronics Engineering Department at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana between 2014 and 2016. He was Fulbright visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley in 2013. His research activity focuses in control and optimization, in particular, the use and of data-driven techniques in optimal estimation and control design, with applications in smart-grids, power electronics and bio-technology. The objective of the stay is to propose new strategies for the optimal charging of electric vehicles generating services for a smart-grids, based on the experience of both Universities in the areas of optimal and model-predictive control, data-driven techniques, smart-grids, demand response and electric vehicles.
