Dr Oliver Inderwildi
Dr Oliver Inderwildi is head of the Low-Carbon Energy Centre at Oxford University’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment. He is also a visiting lecturer at the Scuola di Studi Superiori of the University of Turin and serves as Advisory Board member for ‘Energy & Environmental Science’, a high-impact journal published by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Oliver was educated in Science and Engineering at the University of Heidelberg, the Swiss Institute of Technology and the University of Amsterdam. He received additional training in economics and policy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and London School of Economics and Political Science. In 2005, Oliver became a research fellow at the University of Cambridge working with Professor Sir David King and a research associate at Trinity Hall.
Oliver’s research group applies a broad range of scientific techniques ranging from quantum-chemical modeling of fundamental processes to life-cycle assessments and energy-emissions modeling to modern energy problems.
