Project Lead Germany

As the Head of the Technology Assessment Working Group at the Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Animal Husbandry (ILT) of the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture (LfL), my team and I are deeply engaged in several biogas projects. Our current focus includes the development of cost-effective small-scale farm biogas plants using textile materials. Another key project involves a comprehensive estimation of Bavaria's biogas potential, emphasizing the utilization of agricultural by-products like manure and crop residues.

Before joining LfL in 2020, I completed my Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics at Wageningen University, followed by a Postdoctoral position at the Chair of Production and Resource Economics at the Technical University of Munich. Throughout my doctoral and postdoctoral career, my research was primarily centered on bioeconomy topics, exploring the intersection of agriculture, economics, and sustainability. This background has equipped me with a unique perspective and expertise that I apply to innovating in biogas technology, ensuring it aligns with sustainable and economically sound practices.
