During this time, she wrote her master’s thesis within the study program Geographical Development Studies at FU Berlin in which she conducted a case study that examined the socio-economic consequences of a Photovoltaics-Diesel hybrid system on a remote Philippine island. This included qualitative expert interviews as well as a quantitative household survey.
