Research Interests

I am a CNRS Research Scientist in Power & Energy Systems. My research interest lies on modelling and optimization methods for the management and design of the systems over three main investigation areas:
  • Operation and planning of distributed energy resources in transmission and distribution networks.
  • Integrated management and design of multi-energy systems.
  • Value of flexibility and emerging energy markets.

Modelling - distribution & transmission networks, energy markets, generation cost and emissions, demand side management, technico-economical analysis, solar panel, gas turbine, Li-Ion battery.

Solving - linear programming, mixed- integer linear programming, quadratic programming, dynamic programming, genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, hybrid algorithms, distributed optimization, stochastic optimization.
