The EMA Section

The Energy Markets and Analytics (EMA) section (see here and here!) is one of the six sections of Division for Power and Energy Systems (PES), belonging to Department of Wind and Energy Systems of DTU. I am currently heading this section. The other two faculty members of this section (both tenure-track Assistant Professor) are Lesia Mitridati and Robert Mieth (to be joined from June 2023).

The EMA section offers an international, diverse, and friendly atmosphere, encouraging creativity, empathy and team working within the section and beyond. The EMA section has a strong multi-disciplinary research focus on energy markets, advanced optimization and game-theoretic algorithms, AI and energy analytics. Many former EMA members are currently very successful scientists either in academia or in industry.

We are currently 15 members in the section (including faculties, postdocs, PhD students, guest PhD students, research assistants, and an admin coordinator), from 11 nationalities, fully gender balanced, and with diverse scientific backgrounds, including electrical engineering, industrial engineering, operations research, data science, applied math, etc.

To learn more about our department and the EMA section, please check slides here (updated in August 2022).

Remark: The EMA section is used to be "Energy Analytics and Markets" (ELMA) group within Center for Electric Power and Energy Systems (CEE), DTU Electrical Enginnering Department. Since March 2022, the former CEE (now PES division) is part of newly established DTU Wind and Energy Systems Department.
