Dr. Eugene A. Feinberg received his Ph.D. in Mathematics (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 State University of Railway Transportation, Russia. After holding a one-year visiting faculty position at Yale University in 1988-89, he joined Stony Brook University. He has spent two one-semester sabbatical leaves at MIT.
His research interests include stochastic models of operations research, Markov decision processes, and industrial applications of Operations Research and Statistics. Since 1999, he has been working on electric energy applications. He has published more than 150 papers and edited the Handbook on Markov Decision Processes. His research is partially supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Naval Research (ONR), New York Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR), New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and industry. He is a member of several editorial boards including Mathematics of Operations Research, Operations Research Letters, and Applied Mathematics Letters.
Dr. Feinberg has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Institute of Applied System Analysis, National Technical University of Ukraine. He is a Fellow of INFORMS, elected in 2011 "for his fundamental contributions to the theory and practice of operations research in the areas of Markov decision processes and dynamic programming". He is a recipient of the 2012 IEEE Charles Hirsh Award "for developing and implementing on Long Island, electric load forecasting methods and smart grid technologies", and the 2012 IBM Faculty Award.
