I am a research associate at DIW Berlin in the Department of Energy, Transportation, Environment since 2012. I studied economics in Tübingen and Copenhagen and obtained my PhD from TU Berlin within the DIE Grsduate Center. My research focuses on the economics of renewable energy, using numerical and empirical methods. I am interested in questions around the integration of renewables into the power system. This comprises flexibility options such as energy storage, decentral electricity self-supply, electrification of mobility and heat, and acceptance of energy infrastructures. I address these topics in a range of research projects at DIW Berlin and publish my findings in the leading journals in the field. I am also an editor for the DIW Weekly Report and lecturer for renewable electricity economics at HTW Berlin.
