With my work I aim to contribute to the tranformation to a future net-zero energy system. I am focusing on developing and using models with high spatiotemporal resolution to model systems with high shares of renewable energy sources. I like to work interdisciplinary and include social sciences, conservation, climate/weather science... in my work. 

In the autumn term 2019 I will be teaching a course on "Energy Markets and Regulation".


I have been working as Senior Research Associate at the UCL Energy Instiute and as Grantholder at the European Commission Join Research Institute for Energy and Transport. I hold a joint doctorate in Energy Systems Modelling from Utrecht University and the University of Applied Life Sciences, BOKU (Vienna).
