Dr. Hauke Ward (né Schult)

Hauke Ward is a member of the MCC research group Climate and Development. He holds a PhD in economics (TU Berlin) and a M.Sc. in mathematics (Georg-August University Göttingen). He is interested in understanding the role of technology within (complex) global production networks and emission reduction potentials through improved accessibility to efficient technology. Furthermore, his research is investigating the role of energy provision and changing sectoral structures within economic development.

Research interests

  • Economic structures
  • Role of energy within development processes
  • High detailed, global production networks (MRIO data)
  • Production technology, also with regard to current and future emissions
