Prof. Dr. Johanna Myrzik

Faculty 1 – Physics/Electrical Engineering

On March 1, 2018, Johanna Myrzik received her appointment as Professor of Automation Technology in the Faculty of Physics / Electrical Engineering at the University of Bremen. Her specialty lies in the automation of future energy networks with a high proportion of renewable energy sources. After studying for her Diplom in electrical engineering at the TU Darmstadt, she was awarded her doctorate at the University of Kassel. This was followed by 9 years as a researcher in the Netherlands. At the TU Eindhoven (Netherlands), she was as associate professor responsible for the research fields of decentralized and urban energy supply, power electronics and power quality. In 2009 she was appointed Professor of Energy Efficiency at the TU Dortmund, and in 2011 she became Deputy Head of the Institute for Energy Systems, Energy Efficiency and Energy Economics in Dortmund. Future energy networks require a hybrid multi-sectoral structure that not only has to adapt dynamically to technical requirements and needs, but is also strongly influenced by digitalization and societal change. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research in energy networks will therefore be at the center of her research and teaching activities at the University of Bremen.
