Alvaro Lorca Galvez


I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Operations Research at the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Georgia Tech, with the support of Fulbright and Conicyt-Chile. Before starting the Ph.D. I received a degree in Industrial and Mathematical Engineering, and an M.Sc. in Industrial Engineering, from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. I am a member of IEEE, INFORMS and SIAM, and my main research interests are in developing models and algorithms of robust and stochastic optimization for improving the operation of electric power systems.

Dissertation Title
Robust optimization models and algorithms for improving power system operations
