With the exponential growth of data available from different market channels, firms have the
opportunity to exploit data for their competitive advantage. The volume and variety of data
have far outstripped the capacity of manual analysis. Meanwhile, computers have become
far more powerful, networking is ubiquitous, and algorithms have been developed that can
connect datasets to enable broader and deeper analyses than previously possible. This project
aims to understand decision-making that enhances sustainability in complex market environments

domain, such as electric and autonomous vehicles.

Systems and Smart Energy Markets (big data analytics, machine learning), as well as participation
in teaching (3 hours per week presence in the classroom or grading, plus pre- and post work)
and research activities. The doctoral research fellow will be integrated into research surrounding
information systems and existing research groups at the Institute of Energy Economics at the
