Lavinia Felicitas Baumstark, Transformation Pathways


Lavinia Baumstark studied mathematics at the University of Potsdam and holds a PhD in economics from the University TU Berlin. Her PhD thesis dealt with endogenous growth, research and development investments and technological spillovers.

Currently she is focusing on model development and efficiency improvements of large-scale models of the research domain (e.g. REMIND).
