    Detailed Profile: https://markrodgersphd.com/
    Research Areas: Energy Policy and Economics, Energy Resource Management, Risk and portfolio Analysis, Power systems planning, Generation expansion planning, Human health externalities, Intermittency of renewables, Power grid disruption and resilience
    Energy Research Focus: Applying operations research models to determine the best investment strategy to expand the electric power grid that minimizes total societal costs including market cost and health damages. I also apply similar models to study how to expand capacity to mitigate disruption and intermittency of renewable sources.
