Jarusch Müßel

Doctoral Researcher

Jarusch Müßel pursues a Ph.D. in the Energy Systems group focusing on transport transformation pathways. In this context, he further develops the EDGE-T transport model. Moreover, he aims at integrating behavorial aspects into transport modeling.

Jarusch holds a Master's degree in industrial engineering from RWTH Aachen. Before joining PIK, he focused on gas demand assessment and demand-side flexibility as a Research Associate at Hertie School.
