Research Interests

I am interested in different uncertainty treatments of energy systems and how well they are represented in energy systems models. The sheer complexity and web of relationships between different components renders this relevant topic interesting for many disciplines. Currently I am working on alternative approaches to traditional cost minimisations in order to increase robustness against perturbations, unforeseen changes, and to take political and societal challenges into account.

I have started my PhD in January 2021 under the supervision of Fred Espen Benth and Marianne Zeyringer. I am part of the SPATUS project, which is a collaboration between the Department of Mathematics (MI) and the Department of Technology Systems (ITS) at the University of Oslo. Within this TRG, I focus on a better representation of spatio-temporal uncertainties in energy system models. Here I particularly investigate the role of historical weather data and how that can be used for a more resilient energy transition.

I am part of the Risk and Stochastics section at MI and at ITS, I am part of the energy systems modelling group, who work on highRES that investigates a renewable European power system in 2050.
