Doktoratskolleg Energiesysteme 2030
> Zum Inhalt

PhD#1: Christian Diendorfer

Mechanical Engineering at Vienna University of Technology

The utilization of solar thermal power is a promising alternative to conventional energy resources.  The idea of building offshore solar power plants requires profound knowledge on several different topics. This challenge and the desire to make a contribution to a sustainable energy supply are my main motivation for working on this topic.


PhD#2: Florian Toth

Mechanical Engineering at Vienna University yof Technology

I'm fascinated by the field of numerical simulation because of its wide applicability in different areas. Decomposing complex real world problems into solvable subsystems is a challenging task, because it requires in depth knowledge about all underlying physical effects and their interaction. A high level of interdisciplinary makes this task increasingly rewarding. It's inspiring to work on a project to develop new sustainable energy solutions, which are a key requirement of futures society.


PhD#3: Ewelina Rupnik

Geodesy and Cartography, specialization: Geoinformatics, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing at AGH - University of Science and Technology

I am convinced that in order to be successful at a job, it should be both rewarding and convergent with one’s interests. With the challenges entailed in my PhD tasks and enthusiasm for Close Range Photogrammetry, I found the position within ENSYS2030 a perfect match, and applied for it.
Pursuing my academic career at the Doctoral College was further encouraged by its practical aspect, the objective of real world implementation and potential job prospects afterwards.


PhD# : Zeinab Amin-Akhlaghi

Physics in Tabriz University, Industrial Laser Technology in Vienna University of Technology, Systems Design (Remote Systems) in Carinthia University of Applied Sciences, Research Scholar in The University of Iowa

My career has been focused on multidisciplinary studies, industrial work experiences, e.g. in Infineon Technologies and Carinthia Tech Research, and I am still interested in applied multidisciplinary projects. The field of energy systems and especially renewable energies is the technology for the future of the society and a better quality of life.


PhD#5: Sandra Kogler

Technical Chemistry at Johannes Kepler University, Linz

During my studies I focused on renewable energies, therefore I wrote my diploma thesis at the Linz Institute of Organic Solar Cells (LIOS). The Ensys2030 project at the technical university of Vienna gives me the opportunity to do research in this highly important and interesting field. The knowledge of the physical-chemical reactions in the fuel cells will help to further improve them and will eventually allow a widespread commercial application.


PhD#6: Philipp Unterberger

Mechanical Engineering at Vienna University of Technology and Technische Universität München

I got in touch with the field of hydraulic machinery during my studies on the TU Vienna. Fascinated by the thematic I extended my knowledge during the elaboration of my Diploma thesis and my employment as a project assistant at the Institute of Energy Systems and Thermodynamics as well. Therefore it was a logical step for me to apply for this PhD program because I think it is a good challenge and a big possibility to implement my theoretical knowledge in practical work.


PhD#7: Michael Jakobi

Mechanical Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Regensburg

My decision for the participation to the doctoral college “Energy Systems 2030” arise by reason of the advantages of working on common targets, the interdisciplinary exchange of different experiences involved and the chance, to provide an insight into some other interesting fields of research. In my opinion the research in the field of energy supply is very forward looking and I appreciate to take part in various developments of new technologies. Furthermore the structured organization of the college offers some more qualifications which give an additional benefit to the doctoral programme.


PhD#8: Peter Nussbaumer

Electrical Engineering/Power Engineering at Vienna University of Technology

Responsible use of natural resources and the conservation of the environment is a great personal concern to me. Scientists are asked to develop the technology to support this. Especially the interdisciplinary nature of the doctoral college ENSYS 2030 as well as the exchange with other young scientists and the Faculty provide the optimum environment to contribute to the research of such technologies.


PhD#9: Ines Leobner

Mechanical Engineering at Vienna University of Technology

During my studies I focused on power engineering particularly renewable energy systems and conducted my diploma thesis in the field of building services research and simulation of energy systems. ENSYS 2030 offers the opportunity to further immerse myself in this area and to contribute to the improvement of planning tools of energy active buildings. Furthermore the interdisciplinary approach of the project appealed to me.
