Curriculum vitae

Stephan Ferenz studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology with the focus on communication engineering and on electric power engineering at Leibniz University Hanover. In 2016, he finished his Bachelor of Science with his thesis "Global Motion Estimation for Aerial Video Sequences" (at the Institut für Informationsverarbeitung).

In 2017, Stephan Ferenz studied abroad at Michigan State University in the US. In 2019, he wrote his Master thesis about "Analysis of Economic Incentives for Decentralized Coordinated Voltage Regulation in the Distribution Grid" in the group for energy informatics of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Astrid Nieße at  Leibniz University Hanover. He finished his Master of Science in November 2019.

Afterwards, Stephan Ferenz joined the group for energy informatics at Leibniz University Hanover as a PhD student.
In September of 2020, he followed Prof. Dr.-Ing. Astrid Nieße and joined the  group for Digitalized Energy Systems at the University of Oldenburg. Between 2020 and 2023 he was responsible for the project Future Energy Lab. Since 2023 Stephan Ferenz coordinates the German National Research Data Infrastructure for Interdisciplinary Energy System Research (NFDI4Energy).
