Alumni Resnick Graduate Research Fellow
Zach was a PhD student in electrical engineering advised by Professor Steven Low. He earned his BS Eng. from John Brown University in 2016, and his MS from Caltech in 2018. Zach's research is centered on smart electric vehicle charging, where he draws on broad interests at the intersection of data science, computer science, and energy. Zach helped develop the software and algorithms that make up the Adaptive Charging Network (ACN), a framework for smart charging systems, which was developed at Caltech and has since been commercialized by PowerFlex, a Caltech startup. More recently, he has focused on distilling the data and insights captured from building actual charging systems into an open-source toolbox for EV charging research. As a lover of travel and of the outdoors, he hopes that affordable and ubiquitous charging infrastructure will speed the adoption of electric vehicles worldwide, allowing us to be good stewards of our environment without restricting mobility.
Zach is currently a technical lead at PowerFlex Systems.
