Emma Stewart

Emma Stewart is an Associate Program Leader for Defense Infrastructure at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. She leads a research team in providing assured power solutions for critical facilities and advanced sensing and measurement for resilience and cyber applications. She received her PhD in Electrical Engineering in 2009, and Masters in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering in 2005, both from University of Strathclyde in Scotland. During her degrees she worked for two Scottish utilities, in field crew and substation maintenance. Prior to that, Emma was the Group Leader for Grid Integration at LBNL and developed the first micro-synchrophasor network within the US grid, with the data currently in use in many development activities. The analytics work performed on this data for disaggregation of distributed resources from measured grid data received an R + D 100 award in 2017, and over 5 patents. Prior to LBNL Dr Stewart led a distribution modeling and analysis team at DNV GL, performing power systems analysis for large utility clients in the integration of high penetration of DER, work which became the foundation for hosting capacity studies in use today across the country. Dr Stewart has over 20 journals and 40 conference papers presented and published in the past 15 years of focused research in this area. Emma is currently the PI of projects in the GMLC such as CleanStart DERMS and CEDS funded deployments of cyber security technologies with the DOD.
