Alexandre Street holds an M.Sc. and a D.Sc. (PhD) in electrical engineering (emphasis in operations research) from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. From 2003 to 2007, he participated in several projects related to strategic bidding in the Brazilian energy auctions and market regulation at the Power System Research Consulting (PSR), Rio de Janeiro. From August 2006 to March 2007, he was a visiting researcher at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Ciudad Real, Spain.
At the beginning of 2008, he joined the Electrical Engineering Department at PUC-Rio, where he is currently an Associate Professor and teaches energy economics for graduate students and optimization and statistics for both graduate and undergrad students. He is a co-founder of the Laboratory of Applied Mathematical Programming and Statistics (LAMPS) at PUC-Rio. He is currently the research director of LAMPS and conducts applied research to solve real-world problems of industry agents and society. His main goal as a professor and researcher is to foster PUC-Rio students and LAMPS staff with:
- a teaching environment enriched by the experience and results of real applications based R&D projects with companies;
- close guidance from the definition of a research topic until their journey to achieve high-quality scientific publications;
- a carrier mentoring and vibrant alumni network.
Alexandre Street is a senior member of the IEEE Power and Energy Society and CNPq and FAPERJ scientist. In the last years, he has been serving as an associate editor for relevant scientific journals such as IEEE Transactions on Power Systems (TPWRS), IEEE Open Access Journal of Power and Energy (OAJPE), and more recently, IEEE Transactions on Energy Markets, Policy, and Regulation. He has extensive experience as peer-reviewer, serving as a voluntary referee to the top three power systems and operations research scientific journals since 2007.
His research interests include: 1) power systems economics and electricity markets, 2) robust and stochastic optimization models for power systems operation and planning, 3) time-series modeling and data-science applications in renewable energy, 4) decomposition methods for large-scale optimization, and 5) decision-making under uncertainty.
About LAMPS PUC-Rio:
The Laboratory of Applied Mathematical Programming and Statistics (LAMPS) at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) is a research laboratory that leverages optimization and statistics to create new knowledge, test hypotheses and develop new tools for the industry and society, in particular for energy and financial sectors. LAMPS includes professors, researchers and students associated with the Electrical and Industrial Engineering Departments of PUC-Rio.
