Short Bio

I am a Senior researcher (Associate Professor level) at the Department of Technology, Management and Economics at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where I am a member of the research group of Energy Economics and Modelling. I completed my PhD at the Department of Computer Science (Daisy research group) at Aalborg University (AAU) in Denmark from 2008 to 2012. Before joining AAU, I worked as an Scientific Assistant at Åbo Akademi University in Finland from 2006 to 2008. From 2013 to 2014, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Data System Group at the University of Waterloo in Canada, and was also cross-appointed as a Research Scientist by IBM Toronto Research Center, where I worked on the soscip project.
