Congratulations Dr. Cristina Corchero!

 Dr. Heredia (left) and Corchero (right).Yesterday February 2 my doctorate student, and friend, Cristina Corchero presented her Ph. D. dissertation on optimal bids in electricity markets. Dr. Corchero developed stochastic programming optimization models to find the optimal bid curve that integrates bilateral and future contractes in the sequence of short-term MIBEL's electricity markets.

The members of the examination panel were prof. Stein-Erik Fleten , from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, prof. Andres Ramos from the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas and prof. Jordi Castro, from the  Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. After a very interesting discussion they agreed to give the maximum qualification, Cum Laude, to the research work of Ms. Corchero. I would like to thank the members of the examination committe for their  interesting comments and analysis of the thesis contributions. I'm also very grateful with prof. Pilar Muñoz and  prof. Marcos J. Rider for their collaboration in the supervision of the thesis.

And, of course, my most sinceres congratulations to Dr. Cristina Corchero.
