A Nash-Cournot Equilibrium Model for the North American Natural Gas SectorSteven Gabriel

Speaker Bio: Dr. Steven A. Gabriel received his PhD and MA in Mathematical Sciences from the Johns Hopkins University (1992 and 1989, respectively). Before that, he received an MS in Operations Research (1984) from Stanford University and a BA in French and concentration in Applied Math from Middlebury College (1977). His research interests include optimization and equilibrium modeling in a variety of application areas as well as related algorithm development. Lately he has been focusing on game-theoretic models in the energy sector both from a deterministic as well as stochastic point of view. The game-theoretic perspective is appropriate given the recent deregulation and restructuring that this industry has faced in which some of the players may exert market power. Prior to joining the University of Maryland in 2000, he held positions at George Washington University (part-time faculty), Argonne National Lab (postdoc), as well as project manager and analyst positions in industry for over 20 years.
