Consultation on Appointment
Nils' academic background is in operations research. He holds a masters degree from the University of Mannheim and a PhD from the University of Vienna.
Nils taught several undergraduate and graduate level courses in operations management and operations research. Currently, he is teaching a graduate course on data mining and decision support systems.
Nils’ current research revolves around the economics of energy storage. By being able to buffer renewable energy supplies, energy storage is becoming a key component of the future energy supply chain. His research aims at developing models and methods suitable for efficient storage operation, valuation, and investment.
Further research interests include everything that is related to computational stochastic optimization - a relatively new field that brings together concepts from applied probability, machine learning, mathematical programming, and stochastic simulation.
