Marlene Arens is a new postdoc at IMES. Get to know her through three quick questions:
- What brings you to IMES?
I am not sure when I first heard about Lars and Lund University, but when we met at a conference in Paris we knew each other already. He also joined the review committee of my PhD defence in Utrecht. Last year then, I met Max and Valentin at a conference in Berlin and later on Max forwarded to me the open PostDoc position here at IMES. Yeah, and in January I joined IMES!
- What is your background?
I have a master's degree in mechanical engineering and a PhD in Energy, Resources and Technological Change. Before joining IMES, I worked for Fraunhofer ISI in Germany.
- What motivates you to work on decarbonising industry?
Facing climate change asks us to strongly reduce CO2 emissions and industry is part of that story.
