Dr Kerstin Hötte
Postdoctoral Researcher, Finance and Economics Programme, Alan Turing Institute
Kerstin is an academic visitor at INET and a postdoctoral researcher in the Finance and Economics Programme at The Alan Turing Institute in London.
She studied economics at the Universities Tübingen and Bonn in Germany, and obtained her PhD in a joint degree programme from the universities Paris-1 Sorbonne-Panthéon and Bielefeld. In 2020-2022 she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Oxford Martin School before joining the Turing Institute.
Kerstin's research focuses on technological change and, more specifically, on technology transitions when incumbent technologies are replaced by emerging alternatives. Major applications of her work are climate technologies and substitution patterns in economic and technological networks.
She has published empirical and theoretical work using macroeconomic, agent-based simulations, patent citation and input-output networks, and other applied empirical analyses. An overview of her research can be found on her Google Scholar entry. In her current role at the Turing Institute, Kerstin is exploring a novel data set based on granular financial transactions data of businesses in the UK.
