Speaker: Michael Weinold, ETH Zürich

Michael is a Master’s student in Physics at ETH Zürich (Switzerland). He is currently conducting research as part of his thesis, supervised by Prof. Laura Diaz Anadon at the University of Cambridge and Prof. Didier Sornette at ETH Zürich.

As a visiting researcher in the Department of Land Economy, he is investigating technology spillovers in solid-state lighting, with the aim to derive policy recommendations to accelerate innovation in clean energy technologies.

As part of his research with the C-EENRG, Michael is analysing the performance implications of technological breakthroughs in the device architecture and manufacturing process of GaN based light-emitting diodes. To further capture the economic impact of these breakthroughs, he is building a process-step resolution manufacturing cost model for device architectures spanning almost three decades.

The Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy, and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG) is hosting a seminar series throughout the 2020-21 academic year. Seminars take place online every Thursday, 2-3pm (UK, GMT+1), during the term. Please register online to obtain the Zoom link. All are welcome!
