I am a Professor at DTU Elektro, Centre for Electric Power and Energy, also heading a group focusing on Energy Analytics & Markets. I originally received a M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics (INSA Toulouse, France) and a Ph.D. in Energetics (Ecole des Mines de Paris, France). Over the years I have been a visiting researcher at the University of Oxford (Mathematical Institute), at the University of Washington (Dpt. of Statistics), a scientific consultant at the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), as well as a visiting Professor at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Rennes, France.

My work is mainly related to the application of mathematical modeling and decision-making methods to the energy sector. The primary focus of this research is on easing the large scale integration of renewable energies into power systems and electricity markets, based on stochastic process modeling, forecasting, optimization and decision-making under uncertainty. Some of my key achievements relate to methods for probabilistic forecasting (energy generation, electricity prices, etc.), offering strategies in electricity markets, and to the proposal of future electricity markets (e.g., probabilistic, peer-to peer). 

I have published a large number of manuscripts in high-profile scientific journals in various disciplines, e.g., Nature, Scientific data (Open Data), the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society and Monthly Weather Review (meteorology and climate science); Statistical Science, Statistics and Computing, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society B & C, European Journal of Operational Research (statistics and operations research); various IEEE Transactions (electrical engineering and related topics);  Applied Energy, Wind Energy, Energy Economics (Energy and Energy Economics), etc. I act as an Editor for Wind Energy  and the International Journal of Forecasting, while I previously was an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems.
