Frauke Urban has no plans to stop flying. And neither do many of us. Not completely, anyway. That’s why Urban focuses on increasing her knowledge of sustainable energy systems to help decision-makers and those in the aviation industry make flying more sustainable.- FRAUKE URBAN, KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden

BIOGRAPHY

Frauke Urban

Lives: Stockholm, Sweden, with husband and two children.
Job: Associate Professor in the Management of Sustainable Energy Systems and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
Travel by: “I travel by bike, wherever I can.
When necessary I use an e-car sharing service. I travel by plane when I visit my family in Germany.”
What drives you: “I hope that my research can be one of the small puzzle pieces that solves the big puzzle of how to live more sustainably, and how to restructure economies, industries and societies in a way that mitigates climate change.”
