Dr Sven Eggimann
Energy Demand Modeller
Sven Eggimann is working as a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Geography and the Environment at Oxford University since 2017. His interest lie especially in sustainable infrastructure planning, modelling approaches using Geographical Information Systems and sustainable infrastructure transitions. Funded by an EPSRC grant, he is part of the Infrastructure Transition Research Consortium and focusing on energy demand modelling within a systems-of-system approach.
He received his MSc degree in Geography at the University of Zurich and his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZ). His doctoral research is addressing the challenge of determining the optimal degree of centralisation of socio-technical network based infrastructure systems and focuses on the transition towards more economically sustainable infrastructure systems in the field of sanitation.
