Prof. Dr. Eugene A. Feinberg

Professor Eugene A. Feinberg received Ph.D. in Probability and Statistics from Vilnius University, Lithuania, in 1979.  Between 1976 and 1988 he held research and faculty positions in the Department of Applied Mathematics at Moscow University of Transportation.  After holding a one-year visiting faculty position at Yale University in 1988-89, he joined Stony Brook University, NY, USA, where he is currently Professor of Operations Research at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics.

His research interests include stochastic models of operations research, Markov Decision Processes, and industrial applications of Operations Research and Statistics including energy applications.  He has published more that 130 papers and edited the Handbook on Markov Decision Processes.  His research is partially supported by the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Office of Naval Research, New York Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research, and industry.

Since 1999, he has been working on electric energy applications.  He has developed several accurate electric load forecasting methods and software that are being used by the industry.  Currently he serves as Stony Brook Project Director on the Long Island Smart Energy Corridor project funded by the US Department of Energy to Long Island Power Authority, Farmingdale State College, and Stony Brook University with the total budget around $25M as part of the US Smart Grid Demonstration Initiative.

Dr. Feinberg is a Fellow of INFORMS (the Institute of Operations Research and Management Sciences). He  has been awarded Honorary Doctorate from the National Technical University of Ukraine.  He is a recipient of 2012 Charles Hirsch Award from the Long Island Section of IEEE "for developing and implementing on Long Island, electric load forecasting methods and smart grid technologies."
