Reed is the Founder and Inaugural Director of the University of Pittsburgh’s Energy GRID Institute and the Electric Power Systems Laboratory in the Swanson School of Engineering at Pitt; and Professor of Electric Power Engineering in the Swanson School’s Electrical & Computer Engineering Department. In addition to these roles, Reed is the owner and principal consultant of Power Grid Technology Consulting LLC, and serves as a board member for the following organizations: E-Merge DC Alliance (Chief Science Advisor, Board of Directors), Engineers' Society of Western Pennsylvania (Board of Directors), Western PA/WV Chapter of Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation (Board of Directors), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute ECSE Dept. (Advisory Council), and Aquinas Academy of Pittsburgh (Board of Advisors, BoD Emeritus). His research interests, teaching activities, and related pursuits include advanced electric power grid and energy generation, transmission, and distribution system technologies; power electronics and control technologies (FACTS, HVDC, and MVDC systems); micro-grids and DC infrastructure development, renewable energy systems and integration; smart grid technologies and applications; and energy storage. Reed has over 33 years of combined industry and academic experience in the electric power and energy sector, including positions in engineering, research & development, and executive management throughout his career with the Consolidated Edison Co. of New York, ABB Inc., Mitsubishi Electric Corp., and DNV-KEMA. Throughout his career, Reed has leveraged a unique combination of leadership, business development, marketing, financial, and technical expertise to establishing new business divisions, programs and institutes; creating technology developments and commercialization; and implementing complex large-scale infrastructure projects. His work and contributions have been applied to nearly 200 electric utility T&D and energy generation organizations around the world, as well for EPRI, EEI, and the U.S. DOE; in addition to the various programs he has founded and directed over the past 10 years at Pitt. He has authored or co-authored more than 100 published papers and technical articles in the areas of electric power system analysis, the applications of advanced power systems and power electronics technologies, and power engineering education; and has presented over 120 invited seminars, lectures, and keynote addresses. Reed also has well over 140 media citations, credits and appearances – including regional and national print, radio, and television – on various topics related to power and energy. He is the recipient of several industry, academia, community, and professional society awards. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers (IEEE), including the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), Power Electronics Society (PELS), and Industrial Applications Society (IAS); and is also a member of the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE). Past IEEE positions include governing board member of the Power & Energy Society, as well as the president of the IEEE PES Pittsburgh chapter. He is also the founder of the annual Pitt Electric Power Industry Conference (EPIC), established in 2006. Reed earned his PhD in electric power engineering from the University of Pittsburgh (1997); his M.Eng.in electric power from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (1986), and his B.S.E.E. with electric power concentration from Gannon University (1985). In addition to his professional activities, Reed is an avid triathlete and accomplished Ironman competitor – including participation with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation’s (CCF) Team Challenge Ironman triathlon program, faculty advisor to the Pitt Triathlon Club, a consistent USA Triathlon Age Group National Championship Qualifier, and an Ironman All-World Athlete – among many other athletic interests; and also enjoys spending time in the woods with his dog, landscape gardening, reading, and world travel. Reed is an active volunteer in the community with a strong commitment to serving others, including K-12 STEM programs, school board of director positions, parish activities, athletic team coaching, and various philanthropic endeavors related to improving diversity and equality.
