Dalia Patiño-Echeverri’s research explores, assesses, and proposes technological, policy, and market approaches to contribute to the goal of striking a balance between environmental sustainability, affordability, and reliability in electricity systems.

Much of the work of her research group focuses on the decisions that policy makers, private companies, and citizens face regarding capital investments in electricity infrastructure, and in the methods available to analyze and improve these decisions. The models developed by the group integrate the tools of operations research and engineering to account for the risk and uncertainty that permeate policy, investment, and operational choices, and to consider the value of maintaining flexibility in several dimensions.
She received B.S. and M.Sc. degrees in Industrial Engineering from University of The Andes, Bogotá, Colombia and the Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. During the 2018-2019 academic year, Professor Patino-Echeverri will visit Duke Kunshan University in China where she will continue a project to characterize the uncertainty on future electricity demand in China, and studying regulatory and market design options for the Chinese electric power sector.
