Dennis Anderson is distinguished member of the technical staff in the Military and Energy Systems Analysis Department at Sandia National Laboratories, where he has worked for 25 years. He is currently the deputy program manager for Army modeling and simulation projects and the principal investigator for a large system of systems (SoS) operational energy and logistics modeling project supporting the Joint Operational Energy Initiative under the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development, and Engineering Center. Previously, he was the principal investigator of two internal research projects developing SoS modeling and analysis methodologies and two Army programs involving SoS reliability, availability, and sustainment modeling and analysis. Dennis is one of the original developers of the SoS Analysis Toolset, a stochastic simulation capability for modeling and analysis of complex systems of systems. Dennis received an M.A. in mathematics (applied statistics option) from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, and a B.A. in mathematics from St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota.
Jason E Stamp, Ph.D.
Jason Stamp is a distinguished member of the technical staff in the Special Cyber Initiatives Department at Sandia National Laboratories. His primary research area is cyber security for control systems (including military, government, and industry applications), where he has been leading or supporting R&D efforts since 1999. His cyber security experience includes control system/component assessments, security taxonomies and metrics, threat characterization, cyber/physical impacts, and hybrid modeling/simulation, in addition to electrical power analysis in the areas of grid management, protective relaying, and resilient energy systems for military applications. He was the lead design engineer for the SPIDERS (Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security) microgrid project. He received a B.S. in electrical engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana and his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Clemson University.
John P Eddy, Ph.D.
John Eddy is a principal member of the technical staff in the System Readiness and Sustainment Technologies Department at Sandia National Laboratories. His research areas include operations research and system of systems modeling, simulation, and optimization for civilian and military energy systems. He is the primary developer of the Microgrid Design Toolkit funded by the Department of Energy. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Karina Munoz-Ramos has been at Sandia National Laboratories since 2009 where she is currently a senior member of the technical staff. Her current research interests include power system modeling and simulation, microgrid design and modeling, and analysis of complex systems. She has been an IEEE member since 2007. Karina received her B.S. and M.S. in electrical engineering from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
Benjamin L. Schenkman
Benjamin L. Schenkman joined the Energy Storage and Microgrid Department at Sandia National Laboratories in 2004 and is currently a senior member of the technical staff. His current work involves microgrid control theory; microgrid assessments including rural villages, military, and commercial; battery management systems; energy storage design and implementation; distributed generation; and modeling distributed and renewable energy in the distribution and transmission systems. Prior to Sandia, he worked at Texas Utilities as a distribution engineer and at the Public Service Company of New Mexico as a bulk power engineer. He is a member of the Western Electricity Coordinating Council and has been on numerous advisory and review panels for the Department of Energy and Department of Defense. Benjamin received a B.S. and M.S. in electrical engineering from New Mexico State University with an emphasis in power engineering and deregulation economics.
