We’re excited to announce that Ray Zimmerman has joined Power Analytics Software as a Lead Optimization Engineer, responsible for implementing Unit Commitment Optimization in our software.

Ray will split his time between PAS and his research at Cornell University where he is the lead developer of several open-source software packages related to electric power systems and optimization, including MATPOWER. His research interests are in economics, power engineering, and market analysis software.

Ray and his wife of 30 years love road trips to visit their adult children and grandson. A habit which some may find annoying is his tendency, especially outdoors or while driving, to interrupt conversations to point out any interesting birds that have caught his attention.
