Curriculum Vitae:


Research Areas Detail:

I analyze economic and environmental sustainability of biopower generation. I developed mathematical optimization models to determine optimal timber sourcing and allocation in the Southeastern United States. I determined the minimum carbon tax necessary to make biopower in Georgia competitive with fossil fuels. I also developed optimal harvest rotation model with risks (chance constraints).
