Alberto Lamadrid has a joint appointment as an assistant professor in the Economics and Engineering Departments at Lehigh University.

His interests lie at the intersections of energy and electricity economics, complex stochastic dynamic systems, and mechanism design. In his work so far he has focused on the development of methodologies and tools that allow to properly study the decision making process in the electrical network for operations, planning and regulation with large scale penetration of renewable energy sources. His methods use continuous and discrete optimization, geographic information systems, statistical analysis and engineering models that reflect the physical behavior of the system.
