Research Interest
The focus of my research is on communication architectures and new market designs of the energy system. These are required to address the challenges of increasingly decentralised and more fluctuating power generation, and to guarantee stable and efficient energy provision. I apply methods of agent-based simulation and network analysis.


  • Agent-based simulation

  • network analysis
