I am an assistant professor in the department of Mathematical Engineering in the Université catholique de Louvain. I am also
affiliated with the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) in the Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for
Quantitative Modeling and Analysis (IMMAQ). Formerly I completed my PhD and post-doctoral research at the
department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at UC Berkeley, working with Professor Shmuel Oren. My work is focused on the impacts of large-scale renewable energy integration and demand response integration on
power system operations and power markets. I completed my undergratuate studies at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in the department of Electrical and
Computer Engineering with a focus on electric power systems and power electronics.
I have received the 2015 INFORMS best publication award in energy. I have served as a researcher at the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Palo Alto Research Center, the E3MLab and as a consultant for the Belgian Regulatory Authority for Electricity and Gas, n-Side, Quantil and SunRun. I have served in the technical program committees of the Power Systems Computation Conference (2016) and EnergyCon (2016).
