Hello everyone and welcome!

This personal website is intended to give an overview about my research, teaching and professional career.

My name is Anderson Rodrigo de Queiroz. I am an assistant professor of Decision Sciences in the School of Business at North Carolina Central University (NCCU). I am also an adjunct research professor at North Carolina State University (NCSU), where I am member of the systems engineering group and the OR graduate program. I enjoy working in a collaborative environment and in research that encompasses multi-disciplinary subjects. I have a Ph.D. in OR with a focus on optimization and analytical techniques applied to real world problems that often include large amounts of data.

My primary research interests are in the use, and development of decision-making frameworks and methodologies to different real life problems. Moreover, I plan to expand my current research in modeling and analytics by applying ideas to other areas of interest. One of my objectives is to better use theoretical developments and apply them to model-based analysis that informs real world decision-making. Over the last several years, I have developed computational machinery using mathematical optimization solvers and parallel programing to solve electric and energy systems problems. My work on algorithm development applied to hydro-thermal coordination has led to improved water management in Brazil. Currently, we are enhancing these ideas and creating novel frameworks in other areas such as control strategies for energy storage devices and electric vehicles. Also, I have performed research in electricity markets in topics such as locational marginal pricing, tariff structure, power generation investment decision analysis and benchmark regulation. My future research plans are aimed at developing and testing different methodologies to deal decision-making under uncertainty and the use of statistical and predictive analytics techniques, properly combined with prescriptive models when suitable, to enable better quality decisions.
