Bio/Research

Dr. Genc’s current research aims to understand restructuring issues in electricity markets and could benefit Canadian electricity markets by offering means to understand cross-border trade, pricing, investment, and environmental conservation issues germane to the electricity sector.

His special interests include closed-loop supply chain structure-conduct-performance, market power issues and optimal bidding in electricity markets, regulation and deregulation issues in energy markets, OPEC and oil markets, capacity investments in game-theoretic settings, resource allocations under indivisibilities, and equilibrium characterization and computations under uncertainty in large-scale oligopolies. He has held positions at Tilburg University and Gulf University for Science and Technology.

Genc’s extensive experience in industrial economics and energy economics has led to over 20 published works on topics ranging from energy markets to dynamic games.

In 2001, Genc received his MSc in Industrial Engineering from the University of Arizona, USA, and in 2003 was awarded his PhD in Economics through the University of Arizona, USA.

He joined the University of Guelph in 2004 and has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in Industrial Organization and Economics of Regulation.
