Hi and welcome!

I am an Associate 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).

My current research focus includes power systems, electricity markets, and applications of mathematical tools (such as optimization, equilibrium and complementarity problems, uncertainty modeling techniques, and decomposition methods) to answer economic questions about energy systems. In particular, I am interested in research works related to energy market design, renewable energy integration to the grids, operations, planning, and integrated energy systems.
