GE Digital, Grid Software CTO, BSc., MSc., PhD

Dr. Andrew Gillies leads the GridOS® architecture and technology strategy for Grid Software. Since 2015, he led the early validation of the modern transformative technologies that now form the core of the GE Digital GridOS® strategy. In 2019, bringing together orchestrated microservice architectures, containers, Kubernetes, Kafka, and other cloud-native technologies, he and his team operationally demonstrated a full suite of real-time Wide Area Monitoring System (WAMS) analytics and successfully delivered one of the world’s largest WAMS using this technology. Andrew played a key role in the Inertia innovation project, contributing to machine learning architecture and successful deployment on private cloud infrastructure. Together with teams in Edinburgh and Massy, he has been instrumental in the development of Load Frequency Control applications, expanding the modular portfolio into grid automation. Prior to GE, Andrew led global operations for Psymetrix, a startup focused on WAMS synchrophasor-based solutions. Additionally, he co-authored "Principles of Computational Modelling in Neuroscience" by Sterratt, D., Graham, B., Gillies, A., Willshaw, D., published by Cambridge University Press in 2011.
