I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering at Aarhus University. My research focuses on the modelling of large-scale energy systems with high renewable penetration paying special attention to the role of solar photovoltaics.
Currently, I participate in the REINVEST project to research alternative transition pathways for Europe and Denmark, and in the HYPERFARM project, where we investigate different Agrivoltaic concepts. Moreover, I lead Aarhus University’s participation in the AURORA project where we are establishing energy communities at four major technical universities in Europe.
I’m always interested to speak to enthusiastic students looking for a thesis project or research experience. Send me an email with your CV and research interests.

Currently, I teach the following MSc courses at the Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering at Aarhus University. In the fall semester, I teach Solar Energy, and Renewable Energy Systems. I also participate in the course Renewable Energy Technologies. In the spring semester, I teach Thermodynamics.
I participate in various initiatives and platforms aimed at fostering an informed and rigorous public debate on the energy transition. I am a member of the Critical Energy Observatory, the Renewable Energy Foundation and ONGAWA, Technology for Human Development. I have published several articles in press, delivered one TEDx talk, co-authored one report to explain the operation of the electricity market in Spain and several other topics. See here a complete list of my public outreach activities.
In 2021, I was one of the 100 experts collaborating with the Foresight Office of the Spanish Government on the national strategy España 2050. I co-authored Chapter 4 on how to become a climate-neutral and sustainable society.
