Hi and welcome!
I am an Assistant Professor at the Energy Analytics & Markets (ELMA) group of Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE), Department of Electrical Engineering (DTU Elektro), Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Click here to see my official DTU webpage!

My research in a nutshell:
My current research focus includes power systems, electricity markets and mathematical tools (such as optimization, complementarity modeling, and decomposition) to answer economic questions about energy systems. In particular, I am interested in research works related to energy market design, renewable energy integration, operations, planning, integrated energy systems and so on. 


  • Nov. 22, 2017: Lazaros Exizidis will be defending his PhD thesis entitled "Electricity markets with high wind power penetration: Information sharing and incentive-compatibility" on December 5, 2017 at University of Mons, Belgium. I jointly supervised his PhD work with F. Vallee and Z. De Greve. His PhD thesis is available here: View Download. Lazaros will be joining ENTSO-E as a market modeling advisor.
  • Oct. 27, 2017: I will be teaching a 3-week special course on "Large-scale optimization problems in energy systems: applications of decomposition techniques" in January 2018. The course description is available here: View Download
