Steven A. Gabriel
Bio: Dr. Gabriel is a Full Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering as well as in the Applied Mathematics & Statistics, and Scientific Computation Program at the University of Maryland-College Park (UMCP). He has also been a Co-Director then Director of the Master of Engineering and Public Policy Program which is now absorbed into the School of Public Policy. In addition, he is a Research Professor at DIW (German Institute for Economic Research) in Berlin and an Adjunct Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Techonology (NTNU) in Trondheim in the Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management. He has been an active participant in modeling energy, the environment, and other infrastructure issues for over 30 years using optimization, game theory, stochastic modeling and simulation.
Dr. Gabriel has an M.S. in Operations Research from Stanford University (1984), and an M.A. (1989) and Ph.D. (1992) in Mathematical Sciences from the Johns Hopkins University. Prior to joining the University of Maryland in 2000, he was a project manager for energy modeling at ICF Consulting, a postdoctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory, an Operations Research Analyst at Arthur D. Little, Inc., a Systems Analyst with Technology Systems, and a Market Analyst for Kero-Sun, a kerosene heater company.
Professor Gabriel has over 70 publications in refereed journals, conference proceedings, and technical reports including most recently the lead author on the book Complementarity Modeling In Energy Markets (Springer, 2013) (authors: S.A. Gabriel, A.J. Conejo, B.F. Hobbs, D. Fuller, C. Ruiz) Springer, 2012. He has been an expert panelist for the DOE (Energy Information Administration and National Technology Laboratory) in providing guidance on building an international natural gas model as well as evaluation of their fossil energy programs. Also, he has been a guest researcher at the Energy Research Center of the Netherlands in Amsterdam assisting with building certain aspects of their European natural gas market model. Lastly, Professor Gabriel works extensively with both Masters and Ph.D. students in modeling and algorithmic design for energy and other infrastructure problems. Dr. Gabriel is a member of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), Mathematical Programming Society (MPS), and a Senior member of IEEE. During 2014-2015 he is the Trottier Senior Visiting Professor at the Institut de l’Énergie Trottier in Montréal. During 2015-2016 Dr. Gabriel will be spending time in Germany as part of a Humboldt Award he won.
He is invited by Miguel F. Anjos. Don't miss his conferenceon January 29, 2015.
