Hi and welcome!

I am an Associate Professor with the division for Power and Energy Systems, Department of Wind and Energy Systems, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and currently heading the section "Energy Markets and Analytics" (EMA) with 15+ research staff. Read about our section here. I am also the head of studies for the MSc program "Sustainable Energy Systems".

I am interested in data-driven and market-oriented approaches to power system operation and planning, also in coordination with other energy systems. My focus area is the intersection of multiple fields, including optimization, control, game theory, and machine learning for energy applications. Further details are available in my CV.


Currently none.
