PhD candidate


Martha has been part of the Graduate School of the Reiner Lemoine Foundation since January 2022. In her doctoral studies, Martha works on the realization of a socially just and accepted energy transition. For this, she plans to add social and ecological aspects to the current technical and economical focus within energy transition planning processes. The development of an integrated energy system model will assess the impact of energy market reforms on community and household level as well as their implications for distributional justice.

Martha wrote her final thesis within the scope of her masters' studies regenerative energy systems at the TU Berlin in the research unit Off-Grid Systems at the Reiner Lemoine Institut and developed the simulation tool "offgridders", which sizes electrification options.

Following this, from 2019 to 2021, she worked as a researcher at the Reiner Lemoine Institut and was responsible for the project management within the scope of the H2020 research project E-LAND, in which the RLI develops and applies a simulation tool for sector coupled energy systems (multi-vector simulator). She still supports E-LAND in a reduced manner.
