Dr. Panos Evangelos has graduated from University of Patras in Greece, Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics and he holds a PhD degree in Operations Research and Software Engineering from National Technical University of Athens in Greece. He is specialized in operations research methods and mathematical programming in the domain of energy system modelling and he has accumulated experience in database systems and decision support systems design by developing decision support software for GAMS-based models. Dr. Panos has more than 10 years of experience in energy modelling and analysis, and he has been actively involved in the development of the PROMETHEUS world energy stochastic model and NEMESIS EEM econometric model. Dr. Panos has been employed in a series of research projects and studies funded by the European Commission (DG ENER, DG ENV, DG RTD) in the field of energy systems analysis and sustainability assessment, using several mathematical models (including among others the PROMETHEUS world energy stochastic model, the NEMESIS EEM Econometric Model and the PRIMES model). His research interests include stochastic mathematical programming, risk analysis, multi-criteria decision making under uncertainty, energy modelling, integrated sustainability assessment of energy policies and software engineering.

In PSI, Dr. Panos Evangelos is working with the Global Multi-regional MARKAL (GMM) model for the development of Global Energy Scenarios for the World Energy Council, with the Swiss TIMES energy systems model (STEM) for the analysis of Swiss electricity sector strategies and with the bi-level electricity model (BEM) to analyse investment and market behavior of power utilities. In addition, he is contributing to the Integrated Assessment Modeling Consortium (IAMC) with The global integrated assessment MERGE-ETL model
