Sri Nikhil Gupta Gourisetti

Deputy PI, Co-Lead and Research Engineer Pacific Northwest National Laboratory


Sri Nikhil Gupta Gourisetti is a Grid Cybersecurity research engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). During his research engagement at PNNL, Sri Nikhil has worked on several smart grid cyber-physical security projects addressing the security and grid systems interaction challenges and needs of critical facilities and infrastructure. He has been actively involved in research projects on security engineering solutions and responses for critical infrastructure.

He is the Co-PI for DOE Cybersecurity projects such as Keyless Infrastructure Security Solution – a blockchain-based system for critical infrastructure; Mitigation of External-exposure for Energy Delivery Systems; Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity Framework. He is one of the lead authors for DOE-PNNL led buildings cybersecurity framework and the lead developer for vulnerability assessment tools.

He is the Co-PI for the development of on-going cyber-physical security non-intrusive applications. He is a technical lead for an ARPA-E project to develop an incentive-based hardware-in-the-loop project where the grid simulation software and hardware systems interact in real-time. Under a DARPA project, he also led a team to develop a red team – blue team cyber-physical attack scenarios for grid systems.
