Statement of energy interests and expertise:
Dr. Gabriel is involved in a variety of energyrelated, mathematical modeling research projects. Recent examples include:

Development of the World Gas Model (funding from two NSF projects), a largescale, game theoretic model of global natural gas markets. The model has been used in a number of studies both in the U.S. (U.S. Dept. of Energy) as well as foreign governments (e.g., Statistics Norway, German Economic Research Institute, diw.de).

Also, Dr. Gabriel has been involved in the intersection of wastewater and methane and power production modeling for DC Water, one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in the U.S.

Other energy modeling work includes concepts of game theory, optimization, simulation, and probabilistic analysis to answer infrastructure and management questions.
Dr. Steven A. Gabriel is the lead author of "
Complementarity Modeling in Energy Markets" recently published by
Springer. This book presents mathematical, engineering, and economic models for the energy sector based on optimization and game theory collectively called "complementarity". The book is suitable for graduate students or researchers in engineering, operations research, or economics.
