1. Summary

Alberto J. Lamadrid L.

Class of 1961 Associate Professor. Joint appointment Economics, Industrial and Systems Engineering. Integrated Networks for Electricity ("Smart Grid") Cluster, Lehigh University.

Main areas of research: electricity and environmental markets; cyber-physical systems; energy economics; optimization in stochastic, interdependent networks; and resource economics.

Currently working on research examining: strategies for resilient power systems; multi-period stochastic optimization in electrical networks and pricing; adoption of renewable energy sources in energy systems; and the valuation of critical infrastructure assets.

2019-2020 on Sabbatical Leave at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS).
