I received a Ph.D. degree in economics from the University of Minnesota, Mpls., in 1975, with a minor supporting program in mathematics. I am currently a Research Professor, and Professor Emerita of Economics, Mathematics, and Electrical & Computer Engineering, at Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, USA.

My current research is primarily focused on the development and comparative study of electric power market designs for integrated transmission and distribution systems. As supportive research, I have also developed agent-based software platforms permitting careful performance evaluation of these designs by means of systematic computational experiments.

My research career has taken the following winding interdisciplinary road:
