Roles & Research Statement

My main research interest lies in the power adaptivity of various power demand units, be it data centres (EU FP7 SME Projects Fit4Green, ALL4Green and DC4 Cities) or electric vehicles (EU H2020 RIA project Electrific) and the interaction with the power system (e.g. via demand response). I am looking at this from various viewpoints, amongst which are optimization modeling (MILP) but also scenario building, business modeling and market analysis, and lately even social processes. Obviously, I am thoroughly fascinated by the new paradigm of the future energy system that needs to rely on both flexible demand and supply, and I believe that we need the collaboration of multiple disciplines in order to advance knowledge of how to pave the way toward the energy turnaround; all of which will be combined in our new research project RENergetic. What I enjoy most, is working with a highly motivated, interdisciplinary team on these issues.

My role in research activities is the lead of EU collaborative projects with regards to GreenIT and context-aware power consumption for the University of Mannheim.

In consistency with my research interest I support Scientists4Future. Please contact me in case you need support on this issue.
