Research focus: My research will define scenarios and quantify developments in sustainable agriculture, focusing on the competition between food demand and energy crop demand within these scenarios. As well, biomass price developments will be quantified. Lastly, biomass use for electricity, heat, and fuel within the scenarios will be analyzed.
Why do you want to do this PhD?: I started this PhD because I am curious about the use of bioenergy and believe it plays an integral role in the transition to 100% renewable power. I am motivated by the fact that the work I do could be used to further the advancement of sustainability and renewable energy integration in Germany, ultimately leading to climate change mitigation.
What do you like doing when you're not working on your PhD?: When I'm not working, I enjoy reading a good book and enjoying the outdoors (especially when it snows).
