Yashar Ghiassi-Farrokhfal is an Associate Professor at the Rotterdam School of Management. Additionally, he is the academic director of Smart Energy at the Erasmus Center for Data Analytics (ECDA) and the communication director of ACM SIGEnergy. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Toronto, Canada. He has several publications in top-notch journals and has organized multiple conferences/workshops in the field of the energy transition. He has also been involved in multiple European projects such as FlexSUS (heat transition of municipalities) and MAGPIE (Energy transition in Ports). He uses multi-disciplinary approaches and has studied several aspects of energy transitions such as sector coupling, microgrids, electric vehicles, hydrogen, energy storage, and market mechanisms at retail, wholesale, peer-to-peer, and bilateral levels.
