I am an incoming PhD student at University of Liège under the supervision of Professor Louis Wehenkel. My PhD is part of a consortium-led project known as CYPRESS (Cyber-Physical Risk of the bulk Electric Energy Supply System) which aims at developing novel knowledge, methods and tools needed to help ensuring the security of supply through the transmission grid, while accounting for the specific nature of cyber-threats and integrating them into a coherent probabilistic risk management approach.
Before starting the PhD, I was studying a MSc in Sustainable Energy at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) where I did my MSc thesis under the supervision of Spyros Chatzivasileiadis from DTU and Antoine Marot from RTE. I was very lucky that Pierre Pinson was my study line leader, since he kindly mentored me during my studies at DTU.
My latest professional experience was as a part-time student assistant at EA in Denmark where I mainly worked with the ‘Balmorel’ model, an open-source power systems’ optimization model. In parallel, I was working as a Teaching Assistant on the course 42002 Modelling and Analysis of Sustainable Energy Systems using Operations Research with Stephanie Buchholz at DTU.
My main research interests lie at the intersection between power systems modelling and machine learning applications – lately I’ve been super interested in reinforcement learning, probabilistic programming and causality applications for the power grid.
