 Current master students

Every year I supervise the undergraduate thesis of a number of students working on education, energy or the environment. Some of these have been awarded prizes, including Tessy Kaiser (ECONB 2013) who received the Sadi Kirchen Prize for her thesis on intergenerational accounting, and Mourad El Rougy (ECONB, 2017) who has been awarded the HERA award for Future Generations, category IT, for a thesis on the benefit of open data for improving environmental policy design and implementation

During this academic year, I am working with the following students:
