Lukas Kasper is working as university assistant in the research area Industrial Energy Systems at the Institute for Energy Systems and Thermodynamics at TU Wien in Vienna, Austria since 2019. His research focus during his doctoral program in Mechanical Engineering lies in the area of numerical modelling and simulation as well as optimization of operation and control issues. In the course of work for his doctoral thesis, he is developing new approaches in the area of Digital Twinning within the scope of digitalization of industrial energy supply facilities. In 2019, Lukas Kasper completed his master programme Physical Energy and Measurement Engineering, which he passed with distinction. His education also includes a bachelor degree in Technical Physics at TU Wien, which he completed from 2012 to 2016. In his diploma thesis, he worked on the numerical modelling of phase change material in a novel hybrid storage by applying the finite element method. Alongside his studies, Lukas Kasper gained industrial experience at Andritz Hydro and Gas Connect Austria in the areas control engineering and project management.
