Oindrilla Dutta is a postdoctoral appointee with the Energy Storage Technology and Systems department. Prior to joining Sandia, she received BS from the West Bengal University of Technology, India, in 2014, and a Ph.D. from The City University of New York, New York, USA, in 2021. At Sandia, Oindrilla primarily works on the development of Energy Storage Control and Analytics Laboratory (ESCAL), where she performs system integration of hybrid battery technologies, develops energy management system, and analyzes system stability. Her research interest comprises DC-DC and DC-AC converter topologies and control protocols for grid scale energy storage integration, in-situ battery state of health estimation, and adaptive system control.
