Curriculum Vitae
Originally from Germany, Tine graduated from the Radboud University in Molecular Life Science (BSc, 2013) and Biology (MSc, 2016). During her Masters she specialized in the assessment and modelling of renewable energy technologies, focusing mainly on wind and solar. In her first master thesis she developed a model to assess the site-specific greenhouse gas balance of wind turbines on a global scale. During her second project at the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, she implemented a method to predict the development of residential PV under different scenarios in the TIMER energy model.

After graduating, Tine first went to work as consultant at DNV GL, in the field of Environmental Compliance Management, where she gained valuable knowledge about thermal energy generation technologies as well as renewables. She started her PhD at Radboud University in November 2017.

PhD project
In her PhD, Tine investigates the environmental trade-offs of different renewable energy technologies. Impacts she considers are life-cycle energy use, land use, water consumption, scarce material use, greenhouse gas emissions and effects on biodiversity. Those impacts, as well as the electricity produced by renewables, strongly depend on technological performance as well as the spatial and temporal variability in climate. Tine develops a method to account for these variabilities in assessing renewable energy technologies so that their environmental trade-offs can be compared to their non-renewable counterparts.
