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.
