Tom Brown

I work on the integration of renewable power into the energy system at the Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, where I lead a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group on the topic of future energy system design.

Between October 2015 and March 2018 I held a postdoctoral research position at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, working first on renewable energy integration in the CoNDyNet project and then in the RE-INVEST project.

Between May 2012 and September 2015 I worked in the same area at Energynautics GmbH; before 2012 I worked as a physicist researching string theory.

I'm a participant in the Open Energy Modelling Initiative, which aims to promote open and transparent energy modelling.
