Biography

Kerstin is a final stage Ph.D. student (thesis submitted, but not yet defended) at Bielefeld University and Paris-1 Sorbonne-Panthéon. She studied economics at the University of Tübingen and Bonn.

In her doctoral dissertation, she developed a green-technology extension of the macroeconomic, agent-based model Eurace@unibi to study drivers, barriers and macroeconomic consequences of sustainability transitions. A key aspect of her research is the evolution of technological knowledge and its transferability across technological boundaries.

In follow-up projects, Kerstin is in search of an empirical foundation of technology-specific knowledge in empirical input-output and patent citation networks. During her visit at INET, she will investigate the scientific knowledge base of green inventions as a joint project with Francois Lafond and Anton Pichler.
