Eugenio Grippo research interest is in the area of modeling and control of the electric power grid using mathematical curvature theory. He also expanded his research area interest to ML (Machine Learning), DeFi (Decentralized Finance) and IoT (Internet of Things) while pursuing his postdoc at USC.


Eugenio Grippo received his MS and PhD in EE (Electrical Engineering) from University
of Southern California (USC), where he also conducted Postdoctoral studies in Electrical
and Computer Engineering (ECE); he received his “Automation and Industrial Control
Engineer” degree from Universidad Nacional de Quilmes (UNQUI, Buenos Aires,
He worked in the ANRG (Autonomous Network Research Group) center at USC where
he conducted research in machine learning, distributed computing, IoT and cybersecurity.
After that, he worked in the ICAROS LAB (Interactive and Collaborative Autonomous
Robotics Lab) at USC where he conducted research in robotics.
He is currently an Adjunct Professor in Data Science at Pacific States University, Los
Angeles, USA; and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Occidental College, Los Angeles,
