About me

I am currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Málaga. I have previously worked at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen (2013-2016) and at the Center for Electric Power and Energy at the Technical University of Denmark (2011-2013). I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering in 2011 at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) supervised by Prof. Antonio Conejo. The thesis titled "Medium-term electricity trading for risk-averse power producers via stochastic programming" proposes different stochastic mathematical models to determine the optimal strategy of a power producer participating in electricity derivatives markets. Previously, I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Málaga, Spain, in 2004 and 2006, respectively. My research interests include power system operations and economics, renewable integration, reliability, capacity expansion planning, optimization, stochastic programming and electricity markets.
