The Energy Program's Research Scholar Daniel Huppmann has been selected as the recipient of the 2016 Young Researcher Prize by the INFORMS Section on Energy, National Resources and the Environment (ENRE) for joint work with Prof. Sauleh Siddiqui, Johns Hopkins University. In their manuscript “An exact solution method for binary equilibrium problems with compensation and the power market uplift problem”, they proposed a novel methodology to efficiently solve non-cooperative Nash games with binary decision variables. Their work was recognized for its contribution at the intersection of game theory, integer optimization, and energy application, in particular in the context of electricity markets.
