Adam Wierman's research focuses on three seemingly distinct areas: networks, economics, and energy. Though diverse, the areas are each essential to his broader research goal: easing the incorporation of renewable energy into IT and, more generally, into the electricity grid. His work toward this goal is diverse in both area and technique. It not only draws on tools from algorithms, networking, operations research, economics, and control -- starting from theory and continuing through implementation to industrial transfer.
