Steven Gabriel receives Humboldt Research Award

ISR-affiliated Professor Steven Gabriel (CEE) has received a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation to study energy market modeling in Berlin. Gabriel will concentrate on developing equilibrium modeling/algorithms with discrete restrictions. An example occurs in electric power markets every day when considering the “unit commitment” problem for power generation (go/no-go decisions) combined with market-clearing conditions.

Gabriel will collaborate with colleagues at DIW, the Deutsches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung Berlin (aka the German Economic Research Institute) where he has been a research professor for several years.

About the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promotes academic cooperation between excellent scientists and scholars from abroad and from within Germany. Its fellowships and awards allow researchers to come to Germany to work on their own projects, together with a host and collaborative partner. In addition, German scientists and scholars profit from the foundation’s support to carry out research projects abroad as a guest of one of the “Humboldtians”---more than 26,000 Humboldt Foundation alumni worldwide.

The foundation is an intermediary organization for German foreign cultural and educational policy, promoting international cultural dialogue and academic exchange.
