Terrence Mak was a runner-up for the INFORMS ICS Student Prize for his paper on “Efficient Dynamic Compressor Optimization in Natural Gas Transmission Systems“. Congratulations, Terrence!
Seth Blumsack (Penn State), Russell Bent (LANL), and I will be working on joint electricity and gas markets. This research is motivated by increasing interdependencies between the U.S. electric power and natural gas infrastructures, which may have some significant unintended consequences as in the case of the New England Polar vortex in 2014.
Discrete optimization is now available on the new Coursera platform: . First session in October.
