Research

My research blends concepts, models and techniques from optimization theory, probability theory and game theory, and spans a wide range of applied fields including electricity markets, Cournot oligopolies, cloud computing markets, and first-price auctions.

I am particularly interested in adapting mathematical modeling and analysis to the context of electricity markets and power systems.
