Prof. Dr. Felix Creutzig

Prof. Dr. Felix Creutzig is head of the working group Land Use, Infrastructures and Transport and Chair of Sustainability Economics at Technische Universität Berlin. He was lead author of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report and lead analyst of the Global Energy Assessment. His research focuses on:

•    Conceptualizing and quantifying GHG emissions of cities world-wide
•    Assessing opportunities for GHG mitigation of cities world-wide
•    Building models of sustainable urban form and transport
•    Land rents as a complement for financing sustainable infrastructures
•    Analyzing the role of capital stocks and infrastructures for climate change mitigation
•    Land use-mediated uncertainty in integrated assessments, particularly those related to bioenergy

Before joining the MCC and TU Berlin, Felix was a postdoc fellow at the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley, collaborating with Dan Kammen, Lee Schipper and Elizabeth Deakin, and the Energy Foundation China in Beijing. Felix Creutzig received his PhD in Computational Neuroscience from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and holds a Master of Advanced Studies (Path III in Mathematics) from Cambridge University, UK.
