IIASA Alumnus Transitions To New Technologies
Dr. Berger received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg in 2006. He joined the High Voltage Laboratory of ETH Zurich (2006 – 2011), where his PhD was dedicated to the modeling and optimization of multiple energy carrier systems and integration of distributed energy resources. Dr. Berger studied history and philosophy of knowledge (2008 – 2011) at the Department of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences of ETH Zurich. A Postdoctoral stay in Singapore (2011-2013) afforded his connection to the ETH Department of Architecture.
His practical experiences includes work as a project coordinator and scientific advisor at the Singapore-ETH Centre (2013 – ongoing), as project coordinator for Seed Sustainability in Zurich (2007 – 2008), and as an R&D engineer at EADS Space Transportation in Bremen and EADS Astrium in Friedrichshafen (2005 – 2006). He acts as a reviewer for many international journals and grant agencies. For IEEE, Dr. Berger is member of the European Public Policy Initiative and working group on energy.
His research focus is on an interdisciplinary approach toward energy and sustainability.
