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.
April 4, 2023: Accepted! Our paper "Optimization of hybrid power plants: When is a detailed electrolyzer model necessary?" by Manuel Tobias Baumhof, Enrica Raheli, Andrea Gloppen Johnsen, and JK has been accepted for presentation at the IEEE PowerTech Conference 2023, Belgrade, Serbia, June 2023 [ arXiv | GitHub ].
March 29, 2023: I gave a lecture on "portfolio management of hybrid power plants" at NTNU/NHH Winter School 2023 [link] in Geilo, Norway [ slides ].
March 3, 2023: Linde Frölke [LinkedIn] successfully defended her PhD thesis "market design for future district heating systems" [ thesis | slides | video ] . Congrats Linde! Thanks to the examination committee, Sonja Wogrin, Erik Delarue, and Shi You.
March 1, 2023: Farzaneh Pourahmadi [LinkedIn] joined the EMA section as a researcher. She received her PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in 2019. Before joining DTU, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen Business School. During the next three years, she will be mostly working on her DFF project "Combining learning and optimization for faster green transition".
March 1, 2023: Bob Pepin [LinkedIn] joined the EMA section as a postdoctoral fellow. He received his PhD degree in Mathematics from the University of Luxembourg in 2018. Before joining DTU, he was a senior AI specialist at Alexandra Institute, Denmark. During the next one year, he will be working on "data-driven operation of power systems and digitalization".
January 26, 2023: Appointed by the Dean as the Head of Studies for DTU master program "Sustainable Energy Systems", effective from February 1, 2023. Read about the program here.
January 25, 2023: Accepted! Our paper "A market for trading forecasts: A wagering mechanism" by Aitazaz Ali Raja, Pierre Pinson, JK, and Sergio Grammatico has been accepted for publication in the International Journal of Forecasting, forthcoming [ link | arXiv ].
January 19, 2023: It was a pleasure giving an invited webinar on coordination of power, heat, and gas markets for the IEEE PES Spain. Thanks Prof. Antonio Gomez-Exposito (University of Seville) for the invitation!
January 1, 2023: Arega Getaneh Abate [ Homepage ], the recipient of the EuroTechPostdoc2 Programme fellowship, joined the EMA section as a postdoctoral fellow.
