Hi and welcome!

I am an Associate Professor with the Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE), Department of Electrical Engineering (DTU Elektro), Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

My focus area is the intersection of multiple fields, including power and energy systems, optimization, game theory, and machine learning. In particular, I am interested in research works related to electricity markets, uncertainty and risk management, data-driven optimization for operational and planning problems. Further details are available in my CV.

  • Mar. 8, 2021: Congratulations to Vladimir Dvorkin on defending his PhD thesis with title "Stochastic and Private Energy System Optimization" [ video | thesis | slides ]. Special thanks to Prof. Alexander Shapiro (GeogiaTech), Prof. Adam Wierman (Caltech) and Prof. Spyros Chatzivasileiadis (DTU) for examining his thesis. Vladimir stayed with us at the ELMA group for the last four years, and completed his MSc and PhD theses with Prof. Pierre Pinson and myself. Big thanks to Prof. Pascal Van Hentenryck and Prof. Ferdinando Fioretto for hosting Vladimir for six months at GeorgiaTech during his PhD, where he learned a lot about differential privacy. Good luck Vladimir with your next career as a Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT.
