Shat joined PNNL in 2019 as a Post Masters Connected Lighting Research Associate. Before joining PNNL he spent a year as an intern studying and implementing solutions to improve the reliability of semiconductor devices and technology in a high-volume manufacturing environment. His thesis work focused on allowing wind turbines to interact with the power grid to improve stability of the system. A paper based on this work has been published in the ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference proceedings. He is currently supporting the Department of Energy's Solid-State Lighting program working on the Connected Lighting team.
