Assistant professor of industrial and systems engineering Frank E. Curtis has received the Department of Energy’s Early Career Research Program Award. The five-year, $750,000 award will support Curtis’ work in "Fast, Dynamic, and Scalable Algorithms for Large‐Scale Constrained Optimization."
The project will involve the development and implementation of high-performance computing algorithms for solving cutting-edge optimization problems. These include problems that involve data uncertainty, such as predicting supply, demand, and capacity of a given power system.
The DOE awards are designed to bolster the nation's scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years, when many scientists do their most formative work.
