Energy systems worldwide are in a state of rapid evolution due to an array of technological, political, economic, and environmental forces. On a global scale, the overarching consideration is the imperative to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases while continuing to expand access to energy services. My research draws on tools from operations research to inform the design of markets and financial systems able to support an efficient transition to clean resources.
Current projects investigate:
- The debate between centralized and decentralized mechanisms for resource adequacy in competitive power markets, with a particular focus on the role of long-term risk sharing
- Efficient price formation in short-term wholesale electricity markets given uncertainty and non-convexity
- Methods for data-driven optimization under uncertainty and implications for capacity expansion modeling
- Transmission network expansion and cost allocation in liberalized markets
