Alexander Öttl

PhD fellow

About me:

I am a Ph.D. in the Department of Food and Resource Economics at the University of Copenhagen. My academic interests encompass Economics, R-based Computer Programming, Political Science, as well as Statistics, and Machine Learning with a central focus on causality. My primary passion lies in the field of efficiency and benchmarking, where I employ and develop the methodology of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to explore, evaluate, and optimize various processes and systems.

Ph.D. - Research:

My research centers on the application and methodological improvement of DEA. Within this framework, I specifically focus on addressing environmental challenges, such as reducing carbon emissions within the agricultural sector. My aim is to identify opportunities for improving resource utilization, enhancing productivity, and reducing the environmental impact of agricultural practices.
