Biography:

Sonja Wogrin obtained a Dipl. Ing. (5-year degree) in Technical Mathematics at the Graz University of Technology (Jun. 2008) and a Master of Science in Computation for Design and Optimization at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Oct. 2008). She obtained her PhD (Jun. 2013) at the Instituto de Investigación Tecnológica (IIT) at the Universidad Pontificia Comillas, where she is also working as researcher (since May 2009) and Associate Professor in the Industrial Organization Department. Her research interests lie within the area of decision support systems in the energy sector, optimization and in particular the generation capacity expansion problem.


Areas of interest:

Optimization. Bilevel programming. Generation expansion planning. Energy storage.
