Colorado School of Mines
Asmaa holds a bachelor’s degree and pre-master’s degree in electrical engineering from Zagazig University in Egypt. She is currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in electrical engineering at the Colorado School of Mines.
Asmaa Romia is pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in electrical engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, with an anticipated graduation date of 2025. She is looking forward to expanding her network in the transportation industry and meeting amazing people through WTS.
Asmaa holds a bachelor’s degree (2010) and pre-master’s degree (2012) in electrical engineering from Zagazig University in Egypt. In 2014, she moved with her family to the U.S. where she continued her independent research and published two articles as a leading author. Asmaa’s Ph.D. research focuses on electrification of transportation and electric vehicle charging, as well as grid integration and impacts. Her goal is to explore and develop solutions for real-world challenges in the future transportation sector, such as implementing electric vehicles (EV) at scale by applying artificial intelligence techniques. These solutions will help to understand the impact of large-scale penetration of EV loads on the power system and how to minimize/mitigate any negative impacts. She is looking forward to developing her engineering career to support sustainable transportation and help improve people’s lives.
Asmaa is a mom of three children, and she tries hard to be a good role model for them. When she’s not working, Asmaa enjoys spending time with her husband and children, reading, traveling, and cooking. After graduating with her Ph.D., she is looking forward to continuing her career as a researcher in transportation electrification and being a part of this industry.
