My research focuses on ways to reduce the environmental impact, cost, and inefficiency of electric power systems via new operational and control strategies. I am particularly interested in developing new methods to actively engage distributed flexible resources such as energy storage, electric loads, and distributed renewable resources in power system operation. This is especially important in power systems with high penetrations of wind and solar. In my work, I use methods from a variety of fields including controls, optimization, and statistics. I am also interested in using engineering methods to inform energy policy and energy economics.
